The WHRDA Digital Event will be an annual event where we can continue to share knowledge, improve our skills, and stay connected no matter what external forces and boundaries might challenge us.

Remember to make it as dynamic and powerful as possible and for those of you who received Kuksanim's critique last year, make sure to implement the changes to meet the high standard we are aiming for.

The setting and the background is also important so try to film it in the best locations possible.

Remember that it's digital! Film it as many times as possible in order to submit the best performance and strive always for perfection.
