Learn Perfect Posture For Public Speaking With Communication Classes at Arthur Reel Studio, Bronx, New York

You have your speech. You’ve edited it twice, you’ve practiced it three times, and you’re ready to take it to the stage. But when you finally get behind the podium, you slouch, slump, and shake. This ruins your voice, and makes you look shy, embarrassed, and even clueless. To really make a statement, you need to practice perfect posture! Arthur Reel Studios' public speaking classes not only teach verbal communication skills, but physical skills as well.

Here are some of the do’s and don’ts for looking like you know what you’re talking about when speaking in public:

  • Do: Pull your shoulders back and slightly puff out your chest. This will open up the center of your body and allow more oxygen to enter and exit.
  • Don’t: Cross your arms. This cuts you off from your audience and makes you look confrontational or threatening. No one likes a bully.
  • Do: Look natural. As you open your chest, remember to breathe. Let your body find its rhythm and go with the flow. Practice to find the rhythm that best suits you.
  • Don’t: Force a natural look. Even if you think you nailed it, you’ll still look rigid and unprepared. What’s worse, your audience will know when you’re trying too hard.
  • Do: Hold your hands in front of you. Intertwine your fingers with your palms facing inward. This helps you look natural, and will add to your body language when you speak.
  • Don’t: Hold your hands behind your back. This will make you look like you’re hiding something. No one trusts a speaker who looks like they have something to hide.

These tips will help you improve your posture during public speaking, and will give your speeches the edge they need to win your audiences over. However, the only way to perfect these communication skills is with practice. Join the hundreds of students at Arthur Reel Studio who have improved their communication and presentation skills with public speaking classes.
