Build Confidence with Acting Classes Starting in February!

Boone Acting ClassesI’ve always been comfortable on a stage, as far back as I could remember. I would prefer to be under the lights in front of 1000 people rather than perform for a small group, any day.  I grew up dancing, singing and acting, and for the most part, stage fright doesn’t rear it’s ugly head.  Interestingly enough, I have phone anxiety, so it makes me more nervous to call someone than speak to a large crowd.

Enough about me, you already know I’m weird. What about you? Are you nervous speaking up in a meeting? Do you long to express yourself with acting? Do you want to overome that sinking feeling when you stand at a podium?

Meet Hanna Rasco: wife, mom, talented actor, and theater teacher. She’s offering some classes you might be interested in. Even if you don’t want to audition for Wicked, her class can help in so many ways. Here is all the information:

Whether you are looking to express yourself dynamically onstage, at the podium, in group meetings or in everyday situations this class is for you. Using improv technique you will improve control of your voice, discover techniques to channel “stage fright,” gain confidence, and learn to make your body work for you in a fun, interactive environment. Everyone has within them a unique way of expressing themselves that is compelling to others. Let this class help you find yours.

  1. You get nervous about the phone, too? Well, now I don’t feel like such a freak! When I was younger, I had no trouble getting up on a stage and singing my heart out or even acting. It didn’t make me nearly as nervous as a lot of social interaction, so I could just jump up on stage and give it my all. Pretty sure I won’t ever be doing that again, but it’s funny how different it is when you’re performing. I think I’m probably the opposite now. I can talk to anybody, but please don’t put me on a stage!
