What message does your diction communicate? Face it, people are judging us as much by HOW we say something as WHAT we say.
~Do you have a regionalism or dialect that seems to cause misunderstandings or pre-judgments?
~Are you an actor? Are you limited and losing roles because you are unable to produce a professional “Neutral American” dialect?
~Are you in the business or media field? Is your articulation professional and clear, or do you need some improvement?
This workshop is for you. Ginny Kopf will show you how to begin working on cleaner, clearer diction, so that you land the acting job and impress the client!
In this course, you'll learn how to speak American English confidently and naturally, without losing your culture at all. You'll learn how to position your mouth for better clarity with vowels and consonants, how to pronounce words with ease, and how to express yourself professionally through rhythm, phrasing and intonation. Optional materials will be available for purchase.
This workshop will be offered on Wednesdays from 3-5pm at Venue Theatre, 9125 US 19 N @Mainlands Blvd. Start date is 6/22/11, fee is $225 for 8 weeks. For more info contact Venue Theatre, 727-822-6194 or by email to VenueActorStudio@gmail.com.
