Do you find yourself sabotaging auditions with nervousness or freezing up when you walk in the casting room? Are you frustrated because you totally kill it in when rehearsing at home or in the car, but for some reason choke right after you slate your name? There is nothing wrong with you! It isn’t a sign "from the universe" that you shouldn’t be an actor. It is actually the opposite.  


Join Holly Shaw, hypnotherapist, bestselling author of The Creative Formula, and former actor, to find out how your audition jitters or nervousness can be transformed into your best friend. Learn to make it help you create magnetic and powerful energy in auditions and on film so you will have that magic "it" quality that keeps casting directors calling you back!


In this two-hour free workshop, Shaw shares her secrets from over twenty years of studying performance anxiety and from learning to manage it herself while performing in TV, film, and on stages all over the world. You will learn:


• The truth about performance anxiety and what’s really going on when the nerves come out and the body acts up

• How to drop into the "optimum" mindset before stepping into an audition

• Powerful tools for transforming audition jitters into magnetism

• The biggest mistake you can make with auditions and how to avoid it


This workshop will equip you with tools to manage your nervousness so that when big opportunities arise you'll know you've done everything you can to be your magnetic best.
