>> Career Highlights
Sami Dare was born in Minneapolis, MN, grew up in Virginia, MN, and spent much of her childhood on stage singing with her six siblings and her parents who are both Lutheran ministers. As a teenager, her family moved back to Minneapolis, and she's lived there since that time. Sami graduated from Gustavus Adolphus College in St Peter, MN with a degree in Elementary Education. When she became interested in hypnosis in 1991, she apprenticed on stage for two years with an established stage hypnotist, and studied hypnotherapy to become a certified hypnotherapist. She has produced a self-hypnosis CD for people who want to quit smoking, stop overeating, or simply learn how to manage daily stress. Sami has been performing on stage since 1993, in almost every state in the US, including Hawaii.

>> Basic Set-Up Needs
This program is easily adaptable to virtually any condition. For best results, we recommend the following set-up:
Stage: Try to avoid having the audience and performance on the same level. If using a stage, a 16 ft. wide by 8 ft. deep is the minimum requirement. Ideally, a stage would be 20 ft. wide by 16 ft. deep.
Chairs: Please have 10-20 chairs (with backs) on the stage in a single row, facing the audience.
Sound: Artist is able to provide her own sound system capable of covering most settings. However, if your facility has its own sound system, that is preferred in many cases. The artist would require one (1) handheld wireless microphone (preferred) and one XLR input to the sound system for her music player.
Lights: Please have the performance area illuminated as much as possible.
Recording: Video recording of this performance is allowed, however it is to be for Home-Use only. Commercial sale of the recording without permissions is not allowed. Artist assumes no responsibility for misuse of hypnosis recordings (it is recommended that you do not show recording to the show's participants on the same day as the show).
