Overview

What is The Zone?

The Zone is intangible. It is that ideal - that place - that state of mind - where performing is easy, your actions are effortless, and your results exceed all expectations.

Actors, musicians, public speakers, dancers, models, sports-people, entertainers, and singers - we're all performers. We all receive training, practise for countless hours, enter the performance environment, and sooner or later, for better or for worse, we get affected by the performance situation.

We experience performance arousal - a phenomenon which can either get us into The Zone or cause devastating performance anxiety.

So what really is performance arousal? How can you better understand it? How can you control your performance arousal instead of letting it control you?

With Performing in The Zone, you too can discover the secrets of performance arousal and unleash your true performing potential!

You too can perform in The Zone!
