Teacher: CHRISTINE WHEELER

Dates of Class: Monday, October 22, 2018
Class Times: 7PM TO 9:30 PM
Class Location: The Improv Centre Theatre

Description: Work presentations, panel interviews, wedding speeches, auditions, improv shows - sometimes, life requires that you perform whether you like it or not! When faced with this pressure, it is common for many people to experience physical symptoms such as a fluttering or pounding heart, sweaty, shaky hands and a general feeling of freaking out!. Often, just thinking about speaking in front of people spikes your reaction and causes an onslaught of negative thoughts, feelings and beliefs that feed your inner critic.
This unique class is about actually reducing and alleviating the fear! No more forcing yourself to do the thing that terrifies you. No more white-knuckling it! In this workshop you will learn a number of techniques including TAPPING which has been shown to reduce cortisol levels (stress hormone) and calm the fear center of your brain. This workshop will help you to not only calm your nerves, but allow you to feel more comfortable speaking and performing in front of people. It will help to restore your confidence, and to trust your creativity.
Now is the time to get out of your head. Learn to enjoy being in front of a crowd.
