a shift for fall

I realized this spring that in my excitement of my return to health I had taken on too much. I was overworked and burnt out.

Voicing Classes at Free Flow Dance Centre

Voicing classes are designed to help you enhance the range, depth, power and resonance of your voice. Using games, exercises, text, movement, improvisation, and song, these classes are recommended for everyone interested in singing, acting, public speaking, or just being comfortable with your voice and how you use it. Lia’s voice teaching is based on her performance and composition work as well as her experiences studying Roy Hart Voice Work, a technique which connects the body, the voice, and the psyche in a healthy and holistic manner. These classes are geared towards adults at all levels of voice experience, from beginners to professional singers, actors, and speakers.

about the mouth – concert – Dec 15, 2008

Lia Pas and Helen Pridmore, singers trained in extended vocal techniques, will perform an hour-long concert of compositions written by Lia Pas and John Cage, improv-based scores by Helen Pridmore and Lia Pas, and a bit of Klingon Opera thrown in for good measure.

Please join us at Lydia’s Loft for this exciting evening of drinks and exploration.
