Activities include:

  • Practicing Active Breath to integrate breathing with movement and sound.
  • Engaging the fluidity of weight in the body through vocal resonance and vibration combined with actively moving in space.a
  • Experiencing the anatomy of the voice as a whole body experience through vocal & physical practices exploring the skeletal, organ & fluid systems.
