Maybe you're a writer, and you'd like to start performing your work, but you're nervous (or terrified). Maybe you're frequently speaking in front of people and would like some performance techniques to help you deliver your message more successfully. In this class, you'll begin with writing in the 2nd Story style, and then dive deeply into story performance. You'll leave armed with tools for your body, your voice, and your nerves, which will help you captivate any audience. This class includes a "final performance" with the participants.
