I love to help people get over self-consciousness and the fear of presenting themselves in front of a crowd. My work with Free Your Talents shows how to focus on ideas and to get out of the way. It’s great fun. It’s practical. It’s important. It’s not to be put off.
When my mom took me to a dance class when I was tiny, I screamed so long and so loudly that she had to get me out of that studio; I just couldn’t face all those people. I never did take those dance lessons. I understand from experience how terrifying it can be to stand in front of a crowd and feel completely out of whack. It’s scary. It’s hard. It’s lonely. It’s unnecessary.
Still, I was quite uncomfortable performing in plays during college and beyond. Then I took a class that woke me up. I learned that it’s not all about me. I saw that by letting ideas be the focus, I could overcome the racing heart, sweaty palms and non-stop goofiness that kept me so imprisoned. Marvelous! I soon realized that not only could I be free and real in front of an audience, but that I also could teach this ability to others. It’s sensible. It’s doable. It’s encouraging. It’s vital.
I have a Masters Degree in Communications, helped run a community theatre, and spent many years performing as an actor and singer (I even learned to love dancing!). The real joy for me, though, is to hold a mirror up to people who think they’re stuck with discomfort and self-consciousness and to see them realize their own dear freedom.
Nothing beats that.
