Episode 88: How to Use the Stage Like a Superstar

Performers should always move with purpose during a show.

Movement on stage is one of the best and easiest ways to engage with your audience. Simply by standing in a certain spot or moving from one part of the stage to another can affect the audience in different ways. Did you know that you send a more emotional response when you are performing toward Center-Stage-Right? Or did you notice how dramatic it can be to cross Upstage-Left to Upstage-Right? You can communicate more clearly when you plan how you will use the stage. In this episode I share several stage techniques that major performers use every time they perform on stage. You can easily implement them into your own performances. As a bonus, I am sharing visual aids on Instagram.

Episode 87: Know Your Stage

It's easy to rush into performing on stage without learning basic stage directions but this knowledge is essential to building a professional performance career.

Every performance you see has been plan and scripted out. When you see the guitarist rush forward to play alongside the lead singer; When an acrobat does the impossible pose; When the comedian acts out the story leading to the joke; When the dancer spins from one side of the stage to the other. Each of these movements is planned and timed in order to create an exciting performance for the audience. If you want to plan a professional-grade stager performance you must know all the basic stage directions and terminology. In this episode Reggie breaks down the direction you need know to navigate the stage and bring your performance to a new level.

Episode 86: You Reached Your Goal…Now What?

When it starts to feel like the same performance every single time, it may be a sign that complacency is setting in. Time to make some changes.

Complacency usually comes from getting comfortable with success and it happens so easily. Often times it comes after a long-sought-after goal is accomplished. It feels great at first, but eventually it starts to feel like there is no where to go. Each show becomes more reminiscent of the last and you feel like you are trapped in a performance-version of the movie Groundhog Day. There is a light at the end of the tunnel though, a way out if you will. You can start by finding something to get excited about. Maybe it's a new skill, a new goal, or something your genius thought up to add a new element to your performance. You have to get that spark back in your show.
