Class: Voice for Movement with Kim McKean
Kim McKean, Assistant Professor
University of Texas at El Paso, USA
Do you want to use text in your movement work but fear your voice isn't "strong" enough? Are you a dancer who shudders when asked to speak onstage? In this interactive workshop, participants will use text and movement to explore how Laban Technique can free the voice and unlock innate vocal power.
