Episode 89: What is Your Performance Saying to Your Audience?

Every time you step on stage you should be sharing a story with your audience.

A performance is meant to provoke thought or feelings for the audience. If not, then you are just showing off a skill or talent you have. When you are crafting your show think about what you want the audience to feel or think during your show. NOT what they should think about you but rather what feelings or thoughts should they have as a result of seeing your performance. Consider a painting, Starry Night by Van Gogh. This painting provoke different feelings and interpretations from each individual that views it. (Don’t believe me? Google it and provide a meaning of the painting). Your performance is like your Starry Night, your painting. Each person that shares in the experience of it should have an interpretation and should feel something. Tell your audience a story, everyone loves a good story. When people have something they can relate to it makes them desire a connection with you (follower/Fan).

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.
