Transformative Acting

The Voice, Body and Emotional Connection: Make it truthful and create an impact.

Taught by Faith Rumer, Master Acting & Voice Coach

Mondays: 3:00p-6:30p or Tuesdays: 7:00pm – 10:30pm
(on-going, 4 sessions per month) – $240

This is an intensive class directed at opening and strengthening the actor’s instrument (voice, body and emotions)  which allows the most impact possible on-camera. This process will help you create the unique magic all actors want, that “It” factor that directors are looking for.

Whether it’s comedy or drama, every great actor needs a powerful and connected voice, an expressive body and free emotions in order to convey the depth and range of their characters.

In this class you will:
•  GET OUT OF YOUR HEAD and connect to your body
•  FREE your emotional life
•  SPEAK from your power and center
•  RELEASE TENSION from your acting instrument
•  GET RID OF the high or thin voice
•  CONNECT to the truth through your voice

Class includes:
•  Scene Study: Tuesdays, 7:00p-10:30p
•  Personal Monthly Mentoring session with Faith

This class works your entire acting instrument. SCENES AND MONOLOGUES will be presented incorporating character development, script analysis and taking artistic risks. VOICE, BODY AND EMOTIONAL CONNECTION EXERCISES designed to get out of the head and into the body, refine the craft, stay in the moment and release authentic emotional responses are also a part of the work.

Learning a dialect requires more than just mimicking someone’s speech. In order to acquire a believable accent that you can recall and use at will, the accent or dialect needs to be broken down into sound changes, vocal patterns and inflections, tone focus, body language of the culture, and individual character choices. This class guides you through the process of learning and integrating these changes into your own body and speech.
