DROP IN VOICE CLASS 2016/17
Actor/Designated Linklater Voice Teacher Sarah Weatherwax
offers a monthly Drop In Voice Class for Actors & Singers.
** 2nd TUESDAY evening of each month Sept., 2016 to June, 2017.**
Next Class: Tues., Feb. 14, 2017, 6:30PM – 8:30PM
Focus this month: Opening up, Relaxing Down & The Heart Centre
The stresses of daily life - anything from long, cold, dark days to the political environment we live in along with personal responsibilities and challenges - can make it difficult to relax and open on command, as actors are expected to do. For many people, it is the heart centre that stiffens and closes in times of stress, leaving voices stiff and blocky and resources for compassion - the entrance into character - reduced. It is so very important to be able to open up (and relax down) when your acting work requires it....but if you don't have the tools to do so, or lots of practice to do so quickly, your audition, your performance will be good - beacuse you are talented - but limited in its interpretation. So why not make this Valentine's Day about giving a gift to yourself - the gift of a relaxed body, an open mind, a free voice, a warm heart.
A unique environment, this class is both relaxed and professional in its approach to voice for the actor. New performers can develop their skills and experienced performers can re-tune their instruments. Each month offers a complete voice & body warm-up with a slightly different focus. Gently address habitual physical tension and emotional response habits to free your voice and your acting. Receive specific, individualized guidance.
