PERFORMANCE SKILLS WORKSHOP
Sep 30 @ 7:00pm – 9:00pm

Would you like to take your place, up on the stage? This course is intended for the beginner, or those with a little experience of, writing and performing for the stage. Learn how to connect with, and hold, an audience. Have fun while you build confidence and self-esteem as part of a supportive group, with the aim of taking you out of your comfort zone, to where the magic happens!
Even if your end game isn’t a stage performance, there are many situations where these skills will be useful. The course will provide you with the tools you need, to present yourself, with confidence, in front of any audience.

By the end of the course you will have a 5 minute performance, to showcase to an invited audience.

Participant testimonial:
“In the group, it has been evident that we all started the workshops at different stages and levels of ability. However, Annabel has done well to keep things very level and to tailor things to suit all students’ abilities without it having a negative impact upon the group dynamic. In other words, the more advanced have felt suitably challenged and the less advanced haven’t felt lost or out of their depth. Each student has been continually working on their own individual areas and has been learning all the time, even though the group has been of mixed ability.”

£100 (payable in full before the course starts)
£90 (early bird – payment to be made by 31 July 2019)
There is one bursary place available (reduced price), for someone on a low income. Contact me, more for details.
