    “My first audition was like being hit by lightening…. What I saw in my head was not fame or fortune, what I saw was an art form…… my defining moment.” WOW! This is such a beautiful and powerful statement. I often see this glimpse in my daughter and I want to foster her creativity, open mind and ability to be on the stage, sharing her art. I see her shut down her creativity as she notices others observing her. I love how René didn’t let his teacher’s comments hold him back. THANKS for sharing and creating this space!!

      Thank you Star for your comment :) Auditions are powerful crash course in self awareness, aren’t they? I can relate to you “lightening” experience. I love that you see you daughter’s gifts and that you are supporting her to trust her intuition and creativity. You are an awesome Mom! Thanks for listening to the interview. René is an inspiration to us all.
