As part of its educational outreach, Rockville Little Theatre is delighted to offer an Introductory Linklater Voice class, taught by Natalie McManus.
Designated Linklater Voice Teacher, licensed Speech-Language Pathologist, Certified Forensics (Public Speaking) Coach, and Actor with over 30 years of experience.
This six-week class is intended for anyone interested in developing a greater freedom, flexibility, and confidence in their voice, whether they be actors, teachers, singers, or career professionals. Through a detailed progression of exercises, we will work on relaxation, physical awareness and alignment, breathing, resonance, and articulation. We will also explore how the voice works, and why is does not work. This is a speaking voice class, but it will benefit singers.
Classes will be held on Wednesday nights from 7-10pm at the Glenview Mansion Cottage.
Class dates are May 8-June 12th. The cost is $180. Ages 18 and older.
Class size is limited, so register today here.
Participants should wear elastic or drawstring pants (no jeans), and a comfortable top. We will work in socks or bare feet.
