Movement
The movement classes will consist of physical training through Pilates and the work of Irene Dowd, along with a Laban based approach to movement for actors.

Voice
Voice class will take the participant on an exciting journey! We will combine pure vocal technique with exercises to connect the voice to one’s body. We will work to find range, resonance, clear articulation and connection to one’s authentic voice.

Acting
Through acting exercises and text, we will work on some of the fundamentals that will give participants a foundation in acting technique.   

Space is limited.
There is a maximum of 16 students in each session.

We encourage diversity and respect.  Please contact us if you would like to discuss how we could help to provide a comfortable and safe learning environment.
