Voice as Movement is a class series intended for anyone interested in exploring or using voice as a practice and/or in performance. Each class includes a physical warm-up, helping us to increase breath capacity and access vocal resonance in the body. Various exercises for accessing resonance, volume, range, stamina and articulation will be introduced. We will explore how the extension of movement into sound can alter our perception and activate space differently than movement alone. Further, we will experience a dialogue between spoken language and movement. Finally, we will discover how this interplay can expand the variety of choices that are available to performers, allowing for a fuller means of expression through the body. Classes are open to all levels, drop-ins are welcome and each class will have a slightly different focus that is progressive over the course of our time together:

I. Accessing breath

II. Producing sound

III. Working with environment and character

IV. Working with language

V. Working with song

VI. Integrated approaches to voice and movement
