AWARD WINNING ACADEMY FOR MINNESOTA MODELS & ACTORS™
It is hard for me to classify Performance Once as a “class”. Instead it seems to me upon completion that it is more of a life enriching experience. Enrichment came in all forms, from the fulfilling advice of Deanne, the interaction with the other participants, to the exercises that got me thinking about who I am and who I want to become. It further made me examine the examples I set and can set on my three young daughters simply by being me. Taking the wisdom from this experience I can enhance what makes me “me” and reflect that upon others as well as my daughters.
I appreciated and will take with me the powerful advice of Deanne that so many people tend to forget or never stumble upon. A few that stoof out for me were, forgive yourself if you fail and learn from your mistakes, higher self-esteem will lead you to more success, accept yourself and embrace what you look like, have a sense of humor, be responsible and smile, and care for others. The knowledge on posture and poise made me aware of how one can come acorss with the lack of these two importan things.
Effective goal setting and the positive thought that if you believe it, it will happen gave me a beautiful foundation to build my goals on. It also gave me confidence that I CAN do anything. Where I want to be and what I want to be doing in the future, how to get there by bypassing the roadblocks, and to follow my heart are all up to me!
Taking care of myself from the inside out expresses who I am to the world around me. From nutrition to nails to skincare. The hands on experiences were both rewarding and fun. It enhanced what I already knew and brought it all to the next level of the definition of beauty.
The friendships formed during the experience were also a very positive outcome. The four of us girls clicked right off the bat and formed friendships that I am proud and excited about. Each of us brings different backgrounds and experiences to the group that in turn gives us a unique and special blend. I am lucky to call these girls my friends.
Performance One is an uplifting positive experience with enriching aspects that I will take with me where ever I go and pass on to my daughters. The benefits from this experience and the knowledge gained are all traits that will last a lifetime.
