Performance Workshop

What is the sweet spot between “If your not nervous, your no damn good,” (Helen Hayes, grande dame of twentieth century American Theatre) and the terror that can destroy a performance? Do you enjoy performing, but find it terrifying? Convinced that you are at your worst in front of an audience and/or at an audition?

Well explore our fears about performing and learn techniques to overcome them. Performance is a special kind of sharing, of communicating. It can bring deep satisfaction when it goes well, and agony when it doesnt.

We will explore breath, breathing and centering techniques that will help you be your best in any situation.  Have a specific problem or something that just never seems to go tight when you do it?  Bring it, time permitting, you will have the opportunity to work on it as we discover how to make performance a wonderful, joyful experience.
