Two to four day Voice Intensives are taught several times a year. They give you an opportunity for concentrated voice work that can help move you through to the next level more quickly.
Your Voice and Shakespeare!
10:00 – 3:00 PM
One day workshop. No previous experience in Shakespeare necessary. This workshop is open to all. 2 ways to participate in this workshop.
Shakespeare’s texts are the perfect workout for your voice, your acting, and your soul. Memorize a monologue – connect to the passion of feeling or the complexity of the thought, open your voice and ride that wild horse!
In the morning we’ll work on freeing and opening your voice. We’ll also work with techniques that will help you crack Shakespeare’s language, decipher the meaning, and depth of feeling through the rhythm and the sounds in the language. In the afternoon, individual text work in front of the class.
There are two ways to participate –
1) The Whole Enchilada: Participate in both the morning and the afternoon. Cost: 225.00
2) The Taco Salad: Take the morning of Voice and Shakespeare techniques. Observe the application of the work to Shakespeare monologues in the afternoon. Cost: 175.00

Past Intensives offered:
Level 3 Intensive!
Sound and Movement and the Text
Advanced Class for anyone who’s completed Levels 1 & 2. Also open to Linklater Teacher Trainees.What your voice can express is bottomless. The test of a truly masterful actor is having a voice that can express so much more than a general wash of emotion or thought. Being human is complicated. We sometimes feel many things at the same time and often these emotions and thoughts are in conflict with each other. Being able to express the many different things we think and feel at once through your voice is sometimes called having a lot of colors in your voice. The more specific you are and the more free and open your voice is, the more colors your voice will have.
We will work on:
-Upper Resonators and high energy voice: screaming, laughing, crying
-Sound and Movement: total immersion into fully embodying your voice
-Expanding on text work done in level 1&2.
-Individual issues and problems
Two-Day Voice for Camera Acting. Many actors who work on camera often speak about their voices feeling minimized by the mic. In this Intensive we work to stay connected to impulse while using your whole 4 octave speaking range without the volume needed for stage work. Don’t loose expression because you have to speak with less volume.
