Brave Women Transformation Project

Defy Your Fear!


How often are you allowing fear to be the boss of you?

Do you long for an opportunity to be seen, heard, and valued for who you truly are?

Do you find yourself constantly making excuses for not moving forward and living a life that is authentic?

Are you caught up in the fear of judgment from those around you?

How much longer will you wait?

Do you wish you could break free?


Join the next cohort of The Brave Women’s Transformation Project as we begin a new 12 week women’s theatre program in January of 2023.


This 12 week program is a deep dive into the exploration and reclamation of YOU, from the grasp of fear‘s lies.


Through a curriculum that combines theatre performance training techniques, dance/movement therapy, and drama therapy you will be given the tools to embody bravery, creativity, community, and play. As a community, participants are guided to create autobiographical performances that reflect moving forward towards their dreams though fear may be present.


To learn more about becoming a participant, book a free 30 minute meet and greet with founder of The Brave Women’s Transformation Project LLC, Lucia DiVieste Severtson, at the following link:

Directing Workshop for Theater Professionals

A Theatre Director must know the design aspects of the performance and communicate their vision to designers, actors, and crew. In this 8-week course, we will explore the basics of directing for stage (not film, which uses a different skill set). Great for beginners or for experienced directors who want to brush up on their craft. This class meets once a week and will include weekly assignments to be completed at home.
