Chicago. The early aughts. Walker Arts Performing Center. I’m waiting in the wings to make my entrance as a member of the Margaret Jenkins Dance Company. Two male dancers are across stage performing choreography leading up to my entrance. There’s my cue! I enter at full speed. We are doing a complicated lift and propelling throw that sends me into a graceful, full-body, in-mid-air, horizontal arc across the stage. It’s amazing and exhilarating! I’m soooooaaaring….oof! Ugh! Ack! Oh no! The top half of my body gets caught in the lift while the bottom half whips through the air, twisting my pelvis violently, and tearing my S.I. joint. Auuuugghh!
Months later, I am answering phones to make ends meet because I am no longer dancing for a living. Every day I say “Hello. Stearns Consulting. How can I help you?” “Hello. Stearns Consulting. How can I help you?” One day a customer says to me: “Stearns Consulting? It sounds like I’m calling a 900 number.” “Excuse me?” I reply. He says “Your voice is so warm and smooth and... You gotta do something with that voice.” LIGHTBULB!
That lightbulb led me to VOICE ONE, where Elaine’s training changed my life.
That’s my story. What’s yours?
