The Performance Triangle

Lecture no. 1 from the course: Mastering Stage Presence: How to Present to Any Audience

The Performance Triangle

Taught by Professor Melanie M. Long | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Professional Development Courses

Consider how people learn stage presence—a process of cultivating self-awareness and practical skills in an environment of trust and support. Begin with the three building blocks of performance technique: a “triangle” formed by mental focus, your physical life, and your speaking voice. Create a safe and comfortable physical space for the work you’ll do.

Informative, well-planned and presented, and very helpful for life in business and society. We all benefit from learning stage presence, in many areas of life, whether we want to act on stage or not. Melanie Long's interactive approach is fabulous. Very impressive.
