We have a hunch. A theory! We think it’s possible to use *drama* with purpose & control. Our theory is that you can create a personal brand for yourself that will enable you to navigate your life deftly, with magnetism and grace.
Research shows that people would literally rather die than speak in public…! So ladies, plotz now, prepare for impact & say a prayer, because the show must go on – like life!
The Drama Queen Club is a place to experience growth on stage and in life as a performer, speaker & professional… A platform that offers the theatrical community and women of all kinds, performers and non-performers alike, the opportunity to collaborate; with content to support, educate and inspire effective communication in all its forms.
No experience is necessary. All that’s required is curiosity and courage. This is designed to be an experience that will playfully engage you mentally & emotionally – maybe even spiritually! If that’s too *woo-woo* for you, just do you, Boo.
Could you be a Drama Queen? Ask yourself if you can relate to any of these women:
When you’re ready to put an end to mentally rehashing emotionally charged scenarios that disrupt your equilibrium – or to finally put your mom’s voice in your head on mute – the Drama Queen club is here to provide a positive eclectic space for you to explore your potential, grow creatively and develop poise. You can count on provocative curated content shared through discussion, scene study, improvisation, innovative games, multi-media presentations & the occasional visiting industry professional.
If you want to be taken seriously, charm effortlessly, or persuade powerfully you’ll need to have the ability to be flexible and intuitive, to read people and the *room* you’re in, and to engage as the most effective version of you for whatever that moment needs.
