Instructor: Christine Brunner

Acclaimed voiceover artist, actor, director and acting coach Christine Brunner leads this 5 week workshop where your young actor of ANY skill level will excel in transforming words on a page to Performance Art! The group will work together, exploring diction, texture, color, dynamics, pace and even using fun voices to bring short works like poems, song lyrics, famous speeches and other memorable text passages to life, while working as a team using listening, body music, levels, body position, stage presence, gesture and movement! Students will have the option of directing their own short piece, in addition to appearing in a variety of the pieces. All pieces will be presented to family and friends on the final day.
