Voice and Movement for the Stage

Prerequisite: Intro to Theater or Audition/Approval of Instructor
The voice is an essential tool that all actors must develop. Once its many uses are made clear the actor has a fantastic technical tool to assist in connecting emotionally to their character. Students will study renowned teacher Kristin Linklater’s text Freeing the Natural Voice and learn how to use their voices to the fullest potential. Being expressive physically is the other actor’s tool of focus in this class. Through several moment techniques including clowning, body mind centering, and Alexander technique, students will become more versed in what the body is capable of and how to best use it in acting.
