About Re-imagining Voice
This voice that we use to communicate, to express our deepest feelings and – yes – to tell the stories of our lives is vastly under utilized! This most personal of our expressive tools needs training and a gentle awakening to be transparent to the images, feelings and intentions inside of us. Diane’s workshop helps us reinvigorate our voice with exercises developed over years of spoken and sung performance and training, opening the voice to its creative possibilities and potential. Special emphasis is placed on going beyond habitual usages and restrictions to find your natural and true voice, increasing its range and resonance. Surprise yourself with the riches you can discover when your imagination is linked creatively to your voice.
