WordSpeak Jam Slam

Conquer Stage Fright


7PM - 9PM

WordSpeak Jam Slam is a Spoken Word & Public Speaking Performance Workshop where students learn how to defeat their performance anxiety and improve their presentation skills! Delivering a speech in front of an audience can be scary but this is a safe space where you get to make mistakes and be yourself, warts and all, without judgment! If you are willing to open your mind and be teachable then you will see results very quickly.  You will learn the art of performance and presentation through spoken word, stories, monologues and speeches in front of fellow students, in a warm and friendly environment. If you happen to have a speech/monologue/presentation you are working on then this where you get to try it out. Whether beginner or advanced, each Student Performer will receive feedback from me, Vocal Sensei Carolyn Thompson, on how to improve technique, performance and stage presence. Fellow students are encouraged to give constructive, positive feedback and help each other grow as speakers. Check out my TED Talks video about Stage Fright!
