Foundations 1

Foundations 1 is our 3-hour introductory course.  If you have not worked with us before, we recommend starting here.  

Even if you are fluent in English, it can be difficult to turn down the volume of your inner translator. Expression becomes choppy as the preoccupation with finding the correct words takes precedence over the spontaneous connection to their meaning.  We will guide you through thinking, writing, voice, and movement exercises to access a subconscious, playful link to language.  Popular English colloquialisms are a key to unlocking the musicality and liveliness of speech.  That inner translator begins to work less as a censor, and more with the flow of feeling.

The next offering of this workshop will be May 5, 2018

Foundations 2

Foundations 2 is an intermediate course that can be taken after Foundations 1. 

Our voices reveal who we are on the inside to the outside world.  It’s easy to feel that something of the self is lost in translation when speaking a non-native language.  This two-part weekend workshop deepens the basics of our Foundations 1 course, strengthening the subconscious connection to language through imagery and sounds.  Structured storytelling is a vehicle to launch the speaker into personally engaged, dynamic expression.  This will help you celebrate your authentic voice as an English speaker.

The next offering of this workshop will be on two Saturdays, March 24 and March 31, 2018

Public Speaking

In this final 2-weekend workshop of the series, the spontaneity and personalized speaking styles developed in our Foundations classes breathe fresh life into prepared presentations and direct all your energy into getting your message across, unchecked by fear, self-consciousness and nerves.

The inhibitions we have in casual conversation are heightened in front of larger audiences.  You may struggle to find the voice of conviction in English that you know you have in your native tongue.  Be it a toast at a best friend’s wedding, a boardroom presentation, or a job interview, prepared speeches are an opportunity to convey an important message with passion and purpose.
