With the world of business suddenly thrust into our loungerooms, the way we present is paramount. The experts at Darlo Drama want to bring out your inner actor with their Passion Speech program.
If your job or business requires you to speak publicly or to front an audience with a presentation, you will have experienced what every performer feels at one time or another: stage fright. While communicating to a group of people can be nerve-wracking, with the correct training, the skill can be learned, and even mastered. Even seasoned speakers can benefit from revamping their skills!
Darlo Drama is a performance-based acting school in Sydney’s eastern suburbs, and while it’s primarily focussed on the craft of acting, it’s introduced some short courses aimed at building confidence and teaching people presentation skills so they can deliver passionate and convincing communications.
Passion Speech: For self-isolation – commencing May 2020
Darlo Drama call it Passion Speech. Taught by seasoned actor, director and teacher, Glen Hamilton, the online course will run over two Saturdays, commencing in May 2020. Glen’s extensive experience in the industry both on-screen and onstage and his enjoyment of the rehearsal process has seen him teaching at the school since 2009.
While our work and social lives have moved to our living rooms, it is important that we maintain our ability to connect and share.
The Passion Speech Course introduces the fundamentals of the confident use of voice and body to deliver a crafted and impactful presentation. By exploring a personal passion or interest you are able to more authentically connect to an audience and present with a sense of conviction and personal leadership.
Great for those in the workforce looking to develop higher-level presenting skills and to understand the process of how to overcome the natural “stage fright” that often inhibits the authentic capacity to engage with others.
This course runs online over two Saturdays.
Session one begins with “practice at home” tools to build voice and body confidence. We then move toward identifying and exploring passions and beginning to articulate those into a written speech.
Session two involves one on one time with your teacher in order to practice and gain feedback on your speech, before then delivering your speech to an online audience. We encourage you to invite family and friends along to your live stream speech presentation.
