Performing Arts - Events
September 10 2017
Come join WLA graduate Elisabeth Estep and the JLC for a day of learning, leading, and free food at the Take the Leading Role Performing Arts & Leadership Conference!
What is it?
A day devoted to learning about how skills commonly used in the performing arts (dance, theater, and music) can be utilized to further hone your leadership skills and advance your future career path--even if that career path is not in the performing arts! The conference will consist of three main parts: attendees will participate in three workshop sessions in the disciplines listed above and learn how these disciplines can be used to further develop leadership skills; they will sit in on a panel discussion of individuals who will speak to how they utilize performing arts skills in their current, non-performing arts careers; and attendees will receive a free catered dinner with additional networking opportunities. Workshop leaders and panel members will include AU faculty/staff, AU alumni, and other performing artists from across the country.
What kind of workshops will be offered?
Workshops will include:
-Using Theater Techniques for Public Speaking
-Leadership Personality Typing & Dance
-The Psychology of Music & How to Take Advantage of Its Benefits
-Improving Leadership with Improv
...and many more!
Why should you attend?
-A free catered dinner is included!
-It's a great resume/CV builder!
-You'll be able to meet other AU students, faculty, and staff members who share your interest in the performing arts
-Learn and network with musicians, dancers, and actors from our region and across the country
