Studies show that perfectionism and depression are on the rise. Perfectionism is prevalent in music, dance, theatre, and sports, and many students lack the knowledge or skills to manage their perfectionism successfully, leaving them vulnerable to anxiety, depression, and burnout.
Perfectionism in Performance offers students valuable knowledge and techniques that help combat maladaptive thoughts and behaviors in performance and beyond.
The content for each experience is specifically tailored to your age group. Minimum age is 12.
That’s entirely up to you!
Perfectionism in Performance can be enjoyed both online and in-person.
