Performance Workshop with D’Lo
This workshop will focus on writing about aspects of our personal stories as well as how to present a solo performance for the stage. The goals of the workshop are to develop skills in both written and verbal communication, to enliven the spirit in regards to writing and performance, to become a more effective speaker, to develop listening skills and giving/getting constructive feedback, and most of all, to test our mind frame to find creative ways of personal expression.
