Daily gentle and vigorous movement prepares us for the physical aspects of vocal and performance work and develops fuller freedom of expression in our bodies, connection between breath, body and voice. Anja’s morning sessions encourage the joy of waking up, being present and moving our bodies.
We explore pathways to powerful performance of songs: vocal and acting technique, personal and emotional connection to material, and methods to bring forth the “story” in a song. Our focus is to create a genuine connection with one’s self and the audience, with presence, aliveness, and confidence. Students perform their songs at a final celebration.
Through movement, acting exercises and improvisation, sound, and song, we connect more deeply with our imagination, physical impulses, and emotions. We learn to embody our material with more choices and cultivate performance skills that enable us to be fully present on stage.
