Now Enrolling: Summer Actor’s Voicework Program

Our Fitmaurice Voicework Summer Session is now enrolling!

  • June 22nd – July 18th
  • Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7PM to 10PM

Held twice weekly, our Fitzmaurice Voice Class taught by Michael Yurchak has been a favorite among our LA acting students for years.

emas52_2This workshop will introduce students to the fundamental elements of Fitzmaurice Voicework® that explores the dynamics between the body, breath, voice, the imagination, language and presence.

It is a physical process that is designed to promote an awareness of the body, spontaneous and free breathing, and healthy vocal expression. It is a helpful tool for actors to find their impulses  and to expand their imaginative potential.

The workshop will use text to learn  how structure can enhance the vocal freedom and provide clarity and connection to text. All students will be required to bring in 16-20 lines of memorized Shakespeare.
