The Introverted Performer – Common or Conundrum?

The idea of being an introvert AND a performer can be mystifying to many people. However, the fact is that many of us *are* introverts. I don’t claim any moral ups or downs, it’s simply a fact–and not necessarily a contradiction!

How is this possible?

Aslahan of Boston, a gorgeous, engaging performer, and a most thoughtful and knowledgable instructor, has decided to address this topic. She has developed a new blog series featuring interviews with introvert performers–and, as it happens, mine is the debut piece!

Says Aslahan: “When I began performing, I struggled with this idea. ‘Everyone knows’ that performers are extroverts – would being an introvert hold me back? Was it an insurmountable obstacle? I love to perform – how was that possible if performing was extroverted in nature? I became determined to see the advantages of being an introvert, to figure out ways to leverage my introverted nature to be an asset to me as a performer.”
