Whenever we communicate a story, an idea or an image we rely on our voices to create a living world for our listeners. To do this we need a voice that is both expressive and authentic. Diane’s unique vocal and physical exercises help us to strengthen and explore the connection between the imagination and the voice increasing its flexibility, authenticity, expressiveness, range and resonance. Special emphasis is placed on finding your natural and true voice. Come prepared to breathe, sing and SOUND OUT!
Wednesday Evenings: March 26th, April 2nd and April 9th from 7:00-8:30 pm $25 per session
