This class will give actors the tools they need to create a clear and open connection between themselves and their voices. Using a Kristin Linklater based progression, this class will explore breath, alignment, relaxation, resonance, projection, support and vocal health and safety. By the end of this class, you will have a daily warm up and be able to connect with your breath and tap into your true voice for the most effective vocal communication. ***Please bring a poem of your choice (at least 14 lines) to the first class that you would like to work on throughout the course. This class will be capped at 10 students.
