Perform As You: Become The Performer You Were Born To Be
“Be yourself...everyone else is taken.” Oscar Wilde
Sunday 21st of May 2017
Quarry Lodge Studios, Golcar, Huddersfield HD3 4PS
18+ (or 16+ if you have significant performance experience)
£60 or £80 to include Singing 101 taking place on Saturday 20th (just change the amount below to £80 and you’ll automatically booked for both days)
10 spaces available (not including accompanists/ carers who can attend for free by prior arrangement)
Call Olivia Hyde on 07960 887546 or mail firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange your FREE 15 minute consultation. I strongly suggest you do this before buying a spot for this particular workshop.
This workshop is for you if:
You would love to perform but don’t feel as though you have the confidence
You have some experience but shake like a leaf every time and know you’re holding back oor simply know there is so much more that you want to give both to yourself and your audiences
You have no desire to perform in public but feel as though you’d get a lot out of performing for a small supportive group in a cathartic sense
For those familiar with my work as an artist- I cannot stress this enough- this is not a lesson in ‘how to perform like me’ so don’t sign up because you want to emulate my style. This is about finding a style unique and authentic to you. Your goal for the day might be to finally perform in front of someone or it could be to take your performances to the next level. It could be to cathartically sing your heart out as a way of finally expressing yourself...that’s ok too. Whatever it may be, with the support of myself and the rest of the group we will all go through a journey of self discovery and uncover your unique strengths and beautiful vulnerabilities.
Perform as You is the most emotionally rewarding workshop I teach and, while it’s still a lot of fun, it is not for the faint hearted as it will be mentally intense if you’re doing it right. Generally speaking I only accept those over 18 but in some circumstances I will accept 16 and 17 year olds if they have performance experience.
If you’re interested then please call 07960 887546 or email email@example.com with any questions or to arrange a quick consult. Don’t worry, it’s not an audition...it is just to make sure that this workshop is right for you.
There are 10 performances spots available and the price is £60 for the day.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
Will I have to perform?
There won’t be a gun to your head but it’d be a shame if you didn’t.
How many times will I perform to the group?
At least four times.
Will I get one to one advice?
Yes, plenty of it. This is why the group is limited to 10 performers.
Can I sing anything I want?
Yes! Bring an accompanist, play the keyboard provided, bring your own instrument or bring a backing track.
What if I’m a poet? Or a comedian? Or a dancer? Do you only accept singers?
Call or mail me for a consult and we’ll decide together whether you feel this workshop is right for you.
It sounds psychologically intense. Will there be after care provided?
I will assume when you arrive that you are psychologically sound and want to be pushed and challenged in a supportive environment. While those with any kind of mental disorder are more than welcome, we trust that you have support in place if you need it after the workshop. If you have been diagnoosed with a mental illness you may bring a carer for free. I accept no responsibility for any emotional trauma that you may experience. You have been warned that this is an intense workshop.
Is there disabled access?
It depends on the disability so please call or mail me before booking. Carers may attend at no extra charge if you're registered as disabled.
