Connecting the Body and the Voice

Actors often think of movement and vocal training separately, despite the fact that speaking is a physical act. With this course, you’ll explore how physical actor training strengthens and improves the ability to speak while ultimately allowing you to embody a character more successfully. Drawing from many areas of study in movement and voice – including Viewpoints, Laban and Linklater – you will connect physical and vocal action through a series of exercises and explorations. 8 student minimum, 12 maximum.
