Five-Day Intensive in New York


A Five-Day Intensive in NYC

June 10 – June 14 2019

DESIGNED TO PREPARE PERFORMANCE SPECIALISTS TO WORK ACROSS BOUNDARIES IN THEATRE, MUSIC AND DANCE

This 5-day Intensive may be included in the required course work for certification as a One Voice Practitioner. It may serve as:

  • an introduction to integrative work
  • a review and update for participants who have taken a 1st Intensive
  • an opportunity to complete a certification project and share individual work—if you are interested in presenting a class or workshop, please contact joan.melton@joanmelton.com.

While "interdisciplinary" has become an international buzz word, separate trainings remain the norm in the US and most other parts of the world. Yet the value of a more comprehensive approach can be enormous as performers seek to diversify skills, work across media, and access multiple styles.

Four 90-minute classes, 10 AM – 5 PM each day:

  • Anatomy/physiology/acoustics, updates on voice/movement research, and opportunities for practical application of technical information.
  • Differences in vocal requirements from musical theatre to classical theatre, and the relation of genre to voice production in theatre and music.
  • Overview of dance techniques, individual work with faculty, and a production and class in Central Park.

To apply, please contact joan.melton@joanmelton.com - Application deadline May 1st.
