  • Register for all three The Sounding Body workshops for $180!
  • Single class drop-in is $30

This workshop is intended for anyone interested in exploring or using the voice as a practice and/or in performance. Each session includes a physical warm-up, tuning in to how we breathe and how breath can move through the body, as a starting point for making any sound. From there, various exercises for accessing resonance, volume, range and articulation will be shared.

We will explore how the extension of movement into sound and vibration can alter our perception and activate space differently than movement alone. Further, we will experience a dialogue between spoken language and movement, and between dancing and singing. Finally, we will discover how this interplay can expand the variety of choices that are available, allowing for a fuller means of expression through the body.
This practice is informed by years of study in music, movement and energy work, in particular. Exercises and approaches gleaned from working with Meredith Monk & Vocal Ensemble (extended vocal techniques), Jane Comfort (text and movement) and Daria Faïn (qi-gong and locating sound within the body), as well as from my background in theater and opera will be incorporated.

The workshop is open to all levels, drop-ins are welcome and each session will have a slightly different focus that is progressive over the course of our time together.

Registration for the entire series of The Sounding Body, with Pyeng Threadgill (February 28 – March 14), Tatyana Tenenbaum (March 21 - April 4), and Peter Sciscioli (April 11-25), is available for $180! See Register button at top right.
