Stage Fright

Here’s an interesting interview on the subject of fright–athletes ‘choking’ specifically–but it applies pretty well to stage fright too.

One of the great benefits of longform improv training, the way it focuses the performer on listening and responding to the scene partner instead of critiquing oneself, is that it reduces stage fright. It actually can make being in front of people fun.

If you’re interested in taking improv classes a new 7-week course starts about every two months at Live Arts. Email bigbluedoor.stories@gmail.com to find out when the next class starts, or hit the ‘Follow’ button in the far right column of the main page of this blog and you’ll get regular updates about all our classes and shows. Or check in with adult classes under ‘Education’ at livearts.org.
