Teacher: Dori Levine
Participants are guided on a journey to their inner selves; an exploration of body and soul in search of their true voice. We work to uncover years of layers and blocks whether they be psychological, emotional or physical that prevent one from singing out with joy, effortlessness and confidence. Through the use of guided imagery, gentle stretching and movement, and deep whole-body breathwork we will arrive to an altered state of relaxation which sets the stage to help us search for what’s been “in the way” and attempt to let it go. We’ll do “toning” which is a healing form of singing and experiment with other ways in which the voice can be used as a healing instrument. We’ll extend this work into improvisational exercises as vehicles in which we can practice “turning it loose”!
For Whom is this Work Appropriate?This work is designed for non-singers as well as singers, dancers, actors, artists and performers at all levels. Non-singers may experience the joy and gratification of expressing feeling vocally from a deep place within. For experienced singers and singers-in-progress the lessons are loaded with tips and tools for warming-up, increasing resonance, opening and waking-up the voice as well as breathing, placement, vocal technique and improvisation. Great for singers who feel “boxed in”and would like to start taking more chances and for anyone who would like to find their voice and set it free!
