This class is for the actor who wishes to explore the craft of adding dialect to their performance in order to create fuller, more engaging characters.
By exploring the mechanics of sound and understanding how Dialect informs character, Actors will learn the tools that will enable them to navigate away from their natural dialect and acquire new accents.
