Parkland High School, Allentown, PA

These workshops are designed to make practical connections across performance disciplines in the areas of voice, dance, movement and acting. Putting it all together, participants will explore the physicality of language, both spoken and sung, in a movement-based context.

Moving and Sounding!

Workshop for Masterclass Series 

This participative session draws on clinical and practice-based research as it works with singers on moving and sounding simultaneously. Too often singing is taught as a stationary activity; yet the performer who is also an actor and mover is the one most likely to be cast!

Dancing with Voice: A Collaborative Journey across Disciplines

Do dancers and singers breathe differently? Performance specialists have thought so for centuries. But what happens when we’re dancing and singing at the same time?

Dancing with Voice takes you from theatre to classroom to laboratory to rehearsal with professional performers, actors in training, directors, choreographers and world-class physiotherapists.

DANCING WITH VOICE: A Holistic Approach to Training and Performance

5th Annual Conference

Healthy Approaches in the Training of Performing Artists, Chapman University, Orange, CA
