Voice & Verse
18+, Mondays 19.30 - 20.30
Discover your true voice with these ground-breaking classes at the Conservatoire. We'll examine how we breathe and how we speak, establish the basics of articulation and vocal resonance, utilise classical verse as a gateway into expressing structured thought, and explore dynamics of spatial awareness leading to a greater sense of physical presence. Tidal breath, signature voice, vowels, consonants, plosives and continuants: from everyday conversation to weekly work presentations, speaking will never be the same again.

Improve your confidence, self-expression and performance, culminating in an end of term production in a working theatre. Open to adult students of all ages and levels, the course allows you to get back into theatre as we use great play texts to train together in different acting techniques, from comedy and melodrama, to naturalism and epic theatre.
