    Course details

    This dynamic four-week course gives you increased command of your voice and more confidence in whatever situation you use it.  Whether you want to use your voice in a performance or professional context, this course will help you engage with your audience, and make you a more credible, compelling communicator.

    Each session begins with an in-depth vocal warm up developing breath support, resonance, articulation and vocal quality.  Poetry, dramatic texts and creative exercises will unlock the full potential of your voice, developing it into a rich and powerful communication tool.

    Emphasizing the importance of relaxation in freeing your voice, you will learn tips and techniques to help you prepare for public speaking at work, on stage, or elsewhere.

    Feedback and coaching form an essential part of this course.  Your teacher will highlight areas for particular focus and offer you specific points to work on.  Always taught in a relaxed and informal manner, this course is an opportunity to make friends and learn new skills.

    The acting classes are spread over 4 weekly sessions of 2 hours each. Max size group for this course is 12 participants. We keep group sizes small in order for the facilitator to give you a lot of individual feedback and to encourage an intimate, friendly and fun atmosphere in which you can learn and grow.
