Sales Launch 02/15 | Early Bird Countdown


This workshop is designed to offer actors a practical understanding of how the voice works, and how to apply this understanding to creating specific, sustainable, and dynamic choices when working with text.

We will explore the relationship that relaxation, breath and physical alignment have with volume, tone, resonance and placement, offering some basic warm-up tools to prepare the voice for a range of expressions. Then students will work with a scene that encourages a variety of vocal choices, investigating the application of the voice work to text.

This workshop is physical in nature, come prepared to move and make some noise!

Who is this class for?

 – Anyone age 16+

 – Actors

 – Public Speakers

 – Anyone who wants to feel more confident when speaking in public

 – For those who want to expand the power and emotion of their vocal instrument.
