Bye Bye Stage-Fright ... Going from Stage Fright to Stage Presence.

“Stage fright” or “stage presence”? No matter where we are situated on the ‘stage of life’, we would like to be comfortable in our own bones while in the presence of others. We will explore the relevance of Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement® as preparation to perform with aplomb. By using ATM processes as exploratory tools we may enhance our own ‘image of self’.

For performers of all kinds: musicians, poets, performance artists -- anyone who wishes to be at ease with themselves in relation to others.

Come prepared to try it out!  Bring your instrument and a short (under 60 second) excerpt to perform.  Ladies - bring your fancy footwear!

 

Presented by

Deborah Elizabeth Lotus Board of Directors, FGNA, began her movement explorations with Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais in the early 70’s at Esalen Institute in California and continued her training with him through the early 80’s. Prior that, her career in NYC was managing/booking such artists as Ravi Shankar, Pink Floyd, and Oscar Peterson. Her private  and teaching practice is at The Arlington Center where she has recently opened a low-fee "Movement Clinic", The Hip Joint. She has taught Feldenkrais and Movement Intelligence at Harvard and Lesley Universities, and the Longy School of Music .

About the Flu

Learn more about the Flu:  http://www.harvardvanguard.org/health-and-wellness/wellness-information/video-library

Influenza and the common cold virus are all transmitted the same way. Follow the tips below as the best options for avoiding these viruses and to stay healthy.

Clean your hands often

Washing your hands often will help protect you from germs.

Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth, preparing food, or eating with unwashed hands

Germs are often spread when a person touches something that is contaminated with germs and then touches his or her eyes, nose, or mouth.

Avoid close contact

Avoid close contact with people who are sick. When you are sick, keep your distance from others to protect them from getting sick too.

Stay home when you are sick

If possible, stay home from work, school, and errands when you are sick. You will help prevent others from catching your illness.

Cover your mouth and nose

Cover your mouth and nose and cough or sneeze into your sleeve. It may prevent those around you from getting sick.
