Power Moves: How to intimidate when you’re not all that intimidating

Those of us with smaller bodies, physical limitations, or overly “cute” appearances have it tough in the mean streets of the play space; we’re seen as being unable to dish it out, and at first glance we may not inspire the kind of fear that gets bottoms on their knees in a hurry. Never fear, though: just because you can’t be physically menacing doesn’t mean you can’t make them feel your power! This part lecture, part demo class will talk about how to use what you have to it’s greatest ability, how to adapt activities that you may not be physically capable of, and how to alter the pace of the scene to allow you to get the effect that you want.
