Transitions— the moments in a story where we shift between thoughts, scenes and characters —hidden gems tucked away in a story. These hidden gems are waiting to be discovered and brought to the light by the storyteller. As a professional storyteller, learning to master these moments will give your stories extra polish and finesse. It will take your presentation to the next level. This session will teach you how to identify and develop the transitions within your stories by practicing techniques with your eyes, gesture, pause, body language, sound effects, singing or whatever else you feel comfortable bringing onto the stage.
