What do you teach? I offer professional training in Vocal Dance & Voice Movement Integration (VMI). This involves intensive physical exercise using dance, movement, breath, voice, improvisation, physical re-patterning and hands-on practise. Its unique feature is that it connects sound directly with movement. The course frees the voice to be fully alive and reflected in one’s expressive behavior. It also includes “voice with movement” to stimulate and organize the body’s physical-perceptual-emotional awareness.
