- How being present with venue size changes how you perform live.
- The circumstances for which a veteran stage performer needs to come back in for some live performance coaching.
- Some of the worst things you can do on stage.
- Mapping out talking points on stage.
- How Acro Yoga helps Diane with her live performance coaching. How it benefits both artists and teachers of artists to keep learning and trying things we've never done before.
- Why and how artists should watch awards shows.
- How the mistaken belief that the audience is feeling what you're feeling can diminish your performance.
- How and why to articulate clearly and use punctuation in performance.
- Why it's important for best performance to understand and take on the responsibility of your unique artistic position on stage.
- How important it is for an artist to work with a team that supports each member, and communicates to resolve any seeming differences so the artist is never confused.
