Continuing its support of its local homeport and port of call communities, Carnival Cruise Line’s entertainment team recently hosted a workshop for dozens of aspiring dancers from Ascendance Dance Studio, an academy that trains young dancers in all aspects of the craft and has been featured on a number of news outlets.

Held at Carnival’s shoreside rehearsal studio in Davie, Fla., the half-day workshop provided attendees with a first-hand look at what it takes to succeed in the entertainment world.  The workshop also included a live rehearsal for an upcoming show and culminated with an engaging question and answer session.

The workshop was one of many youth activities held regularly at Carnival Studios, a 40,000-square-foot rehearsal space where the line’s shipboard dancers, singers, musicians and backstage personnel come together to rehearse the line’s award-winning shows and conceptualize new programming for the line’s guests.
