 "I have been an acting teacher for a long time, but I realised that the most important skills you need to master as a performer can only be learnt on your own. Part of being a great performer is spending time in your thoughts, building a confident mindset and learning specific skills from people who are in the know. This programme is targeted at those who are serious about working on themselves as performers and artists. It's a chance to get training you'll find nowhere else, with experts and industry professionals sharing insights every step of the way."

Try a Mindset Challenge: Dare to Be Different

If I ask a class to walk around the room, I can almost guarantee that they would pick up the same pace. We are social animals so we tend to do the same as the people around us. The phrase ‘dare to be different’ expresses the attitude of someone who is creative and not afraid of what people think. We need to be daring to be performers. Write in your journal the name of someone you admire. Try to capture what it is about them that makes them distinctive.
