Acting – Movement – Stage Combat 

Workshop for Singers


This comprehensive performance workshop emphasizes the skills of acting, movement and stage combat for singers. So often singers focus on vocal technique first. Their other necessary training in acting and movement becomes secondary. It has been in my experience, the two need to go hand in hand. I truly believe the performer needs to develop their entire instrument. I offer many different workshop packages based on your program’s budget and needs. The minimum workshop would be 2 days. I also offer 3 and 5 day workshops. Individual training sessions are also available. Please contact me for rates and availability.
