A Positive Performance

A Winchester duo is calling young people who need a confidence boost to the stage, saying the performing arts might just be the ticket for positive personal growth.

 

Using drama techniques and life coaching skills, Chelcie Peryer-Davies (22) and Aston James Harrison (25) have created acting workshops for young people, who may be feeling down or insecure.

 

‘Both Aston and I have had our own moments of low self-esteem in the past,’ explains Chelcie.

 

‘We both could have gone down the wrong path but we chose not too – and this is what we want to show others.

 

‘We want to build self-assurance in a creative way - to show that everyone can be great!’

 

With the help of Fixers, the group have created both a flyer and a poster to advertise their self-esteem boosting workshops.

 

The sessions are run by Chelcie and Aston and designed to enhance a person’s outlook on life.

 

‘We want people to learn to love themselves,' Chelcie adds.

 

‘Dreams and goals should be set, and people should believe in themselves.

 

‘We all go down dark roads at some point but there is always a way out. You just have to have the confidence in yourself to change.’

In the future, Chelcie and the team hope to create and put on a performance raising awareness of mental health and well-being.

 

‘We’d like to turn our campaign into an ongoing project. We want our workshops and vision to spread worldwide and we want drama to be accessible to everyone.

 

‘Never give up. There is always light at the end of the tunnel.

 

‘Find your own way to be happy and be you!’
