As part of its educational outreach, Rockville Little Theatre is delighted to offer an Introductory Linklater Voice class, taught by Natalie McManus.
This six-week class is intended for anyone interested in developing a greater freedom, flexibility, and confidence in their voice, whether they be actors, teachers, singers, or career professionals. Through a detailed progression of exercises, we will work on relaxation, physical awareness and alignment, breathing, resonance, and articulation. We will also explore how the voice works, and why is does not work. This is a speaking voice class, but it will benefit singers.
Classes will be held on Monday nights from 7-10 pm at the Glenview Mansion Cottage.
Participants should wear elastic or drawstring pants (no jeans), and a comfortable top. We will work in socks or bare feet.

It's as simple as 1-2-3...
