Acting – Movement – Stage Combat 

Workshop for Singers

This comprehensive performance workshop emphasizes the necessary skills in acting, movement and stage combat needed to help young singers develop into complete stage artists. So often a singer's training focuses on vocal technique first. The other necessary aspects of their craft in acting and movement becomes secondary. I have found stage combat to be an excellent part of a singer's training. It allows them to better understand their body movement; while building concentration, discipline in safety and essential stage partnering skills. It has been in my experience, that all these components must go hand in hand in order for the performer to build their entire instrument.

 

These workshops are a perfect companion to any college, university or young artist program's curriculum. I offer many different workshop packages based on your program’s budget and needs. The basic workshop is

2 days. I also offer more in depth 3 and 5 day workshops.

 

Individual training sessions are also available for singer that are not currently enrolled in a training program.
