American Accent Workout Day
Learning an accent is not just about changing your voice, but adopting a whole new posture and physicality. We'll explore General American, Southern American and New York accents, discovering together the physical consequences of each new accent - how these characters hold themselves, use their mouths, what gestures they use...
It's essential to get the accent into your body first, and then begin looking at individual sounds and mouth placements (tracking jaw movement, mouth space, tongue and airflow) to perfect individual sounds.
As well as working through detailed breakdowns of each accent, we'll spend time working through scenes and duologues to help you physicalise the accent and find the tone and placement that suits your voice - all while keeping it real and believable.
A great day for actors who are new to American accents or who lack the confidence to work in them because we'll be in such a playful, safe and kind setting. By learning new accents, you'll increase your range and castability - highly relevant for all areas of acting and voice work, and for actors developing games, character and drama reels.
The workshop includes lunch - a great opportunity to ask
further questions and get to know like-minded actors!
