You Can Say So Much Without Uttering A Word
You don’t have to hang around me long to know that I am a bit dramatic..in a good way. I enjoy stepping on stage or in front of the camera as a form of creative expression. I also enjoy using theatrics and what I have learned in theater class as I have continued to develop this craft in other areas of my life.
As an actor you study life in order to authentically portray it on stage or in front of the camera. You use sociology, a bit of psychology and observation in order to develop a character that can tell a story…with and without words.
We are no different in real life! We tell stories without uttering a word and it is important to be aware of this. When we speak, we should also be dialed into what our bodies are saying.
I teach a workshop specifically on this topic and here are some of the main areas we cover.
Point of Energy
Hand Positioning and Gestures
Although these are just a few elements of how we use body language, they are key to beginning to understand how you can polish and manage the messages you are saying.
