*Ongoing Singing & Performance Classes are weekly intensives, facilitated by Studio Founder Michelle Kopper Seymour,  who will facilitate you in discovering and empowering your unique voice using the craft tools of acting, the techniques of voice, and the breath/movement/sound practices of yoga. Each class begins with a group warm up designed to support risk taking and to facilitate tuning-In to your authentic voice on all levels: physical, mental, emotional, and creative/spirit. This warm up is followed by individual work sessions for every participant every week. Class size is limited to 10. Teacher Bios
