No one has experienced life the way you have, and no one else has a story like yours. Bring your story to life in a brand new way on a brand new stage! Your true story is unique, and learning to tell it well can be empowering and therapeutic for you, as well as a lasting bridge to connect with others. In this course you’ll learn how to craft your oral storytelling: create a clear narrative arc, bring characters to life, communicate emotional moments, and practice techniques to keep your audience mesmerized. If you’re having fun, they’ll have fun listening to you! You’ll receive focused feedback in a nurturing environment to help boost your confidence and build your skillset as a storyteller. This course will focus on giving you the process and tools you need to tell a captivating 5-8 minute story onstage at your final grad show presentation.
