Malaysian based award-winning performing arts training centre Enfiniti Academy is celebrating its 11th Anniversary this year, amidst the challenging times.
Throughout the pandemic, they have adapted and persevered by digitalising everything, pivoting towards platforms such as Zoom in order to provide online performing arts classes, as well as their drama-based corporate training and youth leadership workshop programmes.
The Academy digitalised all of its programmes by launching its official website in March 2021 at www.enfinitiacademy.com, making their website extremely user-friendly and easy for all to navigate.
The programmes are suitable for individuals from as young as eight years old to corporate professionals;
1. Musical 360 for children between 8-16 years old
2. Performing Arts Certificate for Adults
3. Enfiniti PLAY! Drama-Based Training for Corporates
Head of Enfiniti Academy Joanna Bessey corporate trainer and drama teacher in a statement shared her thoughts that the previous two years were tough for Enfiniti Academy but managed to survive and are continuing to recover.
Furthermore, she believed that 2022 will be a fantastic year, especially with everything opening up again and due to high demand, they will be producing a lot more workshops and corporate training programmes for the general public and corporations
She also expressed her delight at celebrating a decade of producing outstanding, creative leaders at Enfiniti Academy with the focus on teaching quality performing arts making it accessible for students of all ages.
They also aspire to be an incubator for the future creative thinkers and leaders of their country and after 10 years, they see this dream becoming a reality in their graduates
“Those who have gone through our performing arts course will inherently become more well-rounded individuals. Our courses – such as Musical 360 or the Performing Arts Certificate – besides focusing on dance, drama and singing, aim to boost one’s confidence, enhance communication skills and encourage creative thinking,” said Joanna Bessey.
For her part, Enfiniti Academy founder and ‘Chief Dream-Maker’ of the Enfiniti Creative Universe Tiara Jacquelina at the previous 10th-anniversary event spoke of how proud she was to see the Academy’s vision of being a centre for accessible performing arts education, realised.
“Ten years ago, performing arts was not a priority in Kuala Lumpur. Joanna Bessey and I established Enfiniti Academy to provide an avenue where young people can be trained by the best in the industry. We train the young people that we want to see lead our country in the future, whose creative minds will make all the difference,” said Tiara.
She added that it has been their greatest joy to see over 9,000 of their talented students pursuing their dreams since 2011 and Enfiniti Academy makes it possible for more talented young people to fulfill their untapped potential and contribute to the growth of creativity for their nation.
