This class is for anyone who wants to learn more abut how the voice works, why it doesn’t and who wants to explore how to use their voice more freely, expressively and healthily.
Each class will explore a section of the classic Linklater Voice Progression. Students will be led through a series of exercises in each session, and should come prepared to move in loose, comfortable clothing. Each participant should also prepare some memorized text (a monologue/poem etc).
Participants will come away with a basic understanding of the Linklater progression and a series of exercises and warm-ups to carry with them into their future work.
Fee: $125 for AC members; $150 for non-members
