“How Do I Get Out of My Head?”
Join Robert Royston for an entertaining look at the internal conversation we have with ourselves while dancing.

Gain insight, have some Aha! moments, and learn skills and strategies for developing a mental game-plan that gets your Out of Your Head and into your dance. See you there!
