Ask yourself if given the opportunity to creatively express yourself, where do you stop and what do you stop yourself with?

Veteran actor Karen Austin dissects self-sabotage and shares simple steps that will allow you to bring all of yourself to the audition party. Remember, the opposite of fear is work. Such techniques will leave you able to:

  • Embrace your discomfort zone
  • Make the leap into strong choices
  • Deliver your best

Group exercises and a few participants will perform on-camera, time permitting.
