Voice and Movement

VoiceWorks classes are instructed/facilitated classes (for all levels) that combine breath, body and mind, to transform the stresses of daily living into song and the seeds of performance art.  Your life becomes the “song line” through rhythm, time, melody and harmony.

VoiceWorks provides an opportunity to tune into your instrument and create improvisational voice and movement pieces that deliver well-being and satisfaction. VoiceWorks encourages you to connect to yourself and others, while allowing you to have full and free vocal expression. It’s about moving beyond your inner critic, becoming present to your creative self, moving to the music that comes to you, and allowing your voice to fill the space.

Whether you are a shower diva, amateur or professional choral singer, dancer, spoken word poet, public speaker, editor, performer or other professional, you will find a renewed sense of spirit, creativity, balance and purpose.

VoiceWorks with Bisia Belina

Voiceworks Classes Online

VoiceWorks classes are currently being offered ONLINE as a safe, socially distanced option. These virtual voice and movement classes will help you support your physical and mental health.

 

Through these virtual classes Bisia has been connecting with students and co-creating pieces that are inspired by their mutual reality.

This exploration has been uplifting, helpful, reflective, energizing and is providing a space to process the uncertainty. It is not an intellectual exercise it is a creative one.

This offering is here to help you move forward, to reconnect with yourself and find a way to move through the complex emotions that we are dealing with.

Cost: $40 for 60 mins
Sessions longer than 60 minutes are charged at a rate of $10 per 15 minute increment (introductory rate, subject to change).

Format: Depending on your access and comfort level with virtual technology we can use FaceTime, Zoom, WhatsApp or HouseParty for our session. 

Time Slots Available:  11 am, 4 pm, or 7:30 pm

Progression: We will start the process with 2 or 3 one-on-one personal online vocal coaching sessions. From there we will transition to working together in “vocal online pods,” with 3 to 4 singers to a pod. 

These are collaborative composition sessions. (Recording device recommended). 

Here are examples of the explorations that are offered in the one-on-one sessions:

  • What if you began with acknowledging what you feel and sang it in the blues style?
  • What if you changed the tune to a gospel, a spiritual, a rap, a scat?
  • What if you took your ‘present emotional content’ and put it in time?
  • How would that change you? How would your feelings change?
