Cultivating Stage Presence Workshop for Teens
Saturday, November 22 | 1-3PM | Free but registration is required
The bad news is that not everyone is born a natural performer. The good news is that you don't have to be. A lot of the work that goes into creating powerful, memorable spoken-word performances is based around simple things that can be practiced and developed over time. This workshop will share practical tips, tactics and tools for overcoming stage fright, projecting your voice, controlling your body on stage, tapping into your natural emotions and personality, and more. All experience levels are welcome!
Taught by Guante. For teens ages 12 and up.
