FLOW OF ACTING
Instructor Owen Robertson
Sunday Evenings 6p-8p
For Beginning to Intermediate Students
FLOW is the mental state of operation in which a person performing an activity is fully immersed in a feeling of energized focus, full involvement, and enjoyment.
Performing in front of an audience doesn’t have to be scary. With practice, anyone can gain the presentation skills and confidence to act, sing, or dance onstage. The key is finding a nurturing environment where you can hone your craft — a place that encourages you to try new things without fear, and lets you explore your talents and creativity in a fun, encouraging setting. That’s who we are, and that’s what we do.
Whether you’re an aspiring performer or you simply want to increase your comfort level with public speaking, Stageworks has the classes that will give you skills to perform with confidence.
