× Title: Nix the Nerves: Calming Techniques for the Nervous Performer
Teacher: CHRISTINE WHEELER

Dates of Class: Monday, May 7
Class Times: 7PM TO 10 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 doing such a performance under pressure 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! This workshop will give you proven techniques, exercises, tools and strategies that will 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.
