Performance Workshop

What is the sweet spot between “If your not nervous, you're no damn good, (Helen Hayes, grande dame of twetntieth 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 in a show and/or at an audition? Explore your 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. Bring your problem pieces. Youll have the opportunity to practice as we discover how to make performance a wonderful, joyful experience.
