confident in the work place. F.A.C.E. helps artists to
enhance their technical skills as well as increasing stage
presence and personality. It is a liberating tool to free
artists and business professionals to be who they really
are and project the same to the outer world - their

F.A.C.E. will connect you with the performer you are and
