VOICE is a physical activity, and as such, complements training in dance by allowing the individual to discover interdependence of voice and body. The focus of the work lies in addressing idiosyncratic habits, which may inhibit the dancer who wishes to use their voice generally and specifically, in performance. The subject will include a selection from the following: physical awareness of breath in the body, muscularity, resonance, and rhythm through the kinaesthetic awareness of voice in the moment of speaking. Students will be expected to draw upon their experiences of integrated Body Mind practices to facilitate the interdependence of voice and body.
