“Master 4 Listening Styles and Take Your Relationships to the Next Level” – Michelle Lefebvre, CMC Adjunct Instructor
When you open your mouth, do you seal the deal or kill the deal? Your leadership and your success depend on how well you present yourself, your ideas and your values – and on how well you listen to others.
In this session you’ll walk away with techniques to:
• Identify your listening style
• Create strong bonds and relationships through the power of listening.
• Challenge your own status quo.
To learn more, call 963-2172. Everyone is welcome to attend. There is no charge and no need to R.S.V.P.
On Thursday, April 24th at 7PM, our Acting II Students will be performing their final projects for the year; their personal, ten-minute productions, the acting pieces they have been perfecting this semester as the culmination of a year of acting class.

The Student Workshop Productions are free and open to the public; the pieces being performed are all original, and will be graded as a student’s final.
Come join us for our wrap up of our theatre year with these intimate performances. Everyone is welcome.
