The Art of the Promo: An acting workshop by The Glorious Ladies of Rasslin Y'all

  • White Light Studio 900 Vargas Road Austin, TX, 78741 United States (map)


Austin's own wrestling league comprised entirely of women and non-binary people, The Glorious Ladies of Rasslin Y'all (GLORY), want to teach you The Art of the Promo.

"Promoing" is the art of talking yourself up to a crowd while talking wicked trash on your opponent before your match. An act of complete bravado that feels incredibly empowering, especially when its natural machismo is put into our hands.

There is no better way to improve public speaking, self-confidence, and on-your-toes wordplay than to lose yourself in a wrestling persona at GLORY's Promo Workshop!

Workshop 1: Fundamentals of Promo
We will show you examples of classic promos for you to sit back and enjoy. We will then clown HARD on each other to see this form implemented in REAL TIME. Next we will play Promo Games to allow you to use your improvisational skills in a safe environment filled with other people pretending to be wrestlers for an evening.
