UNLOCKING THE VOICE
“ I do not strive to create a voice above
your own. The vocal process is the release of the voice through synchronization of muscles of respiration and throat. Natural strength and beauty via poetry and music becomes inevitable and unstoppable. This is not a “technique” but a unique way of training and is suitable for Opera, Jazz and Pop. As the Masters of old Belcanto would say “First listen then sing!”
Darren Royston is an established international choreographer, director, dance consultant in drama and also a specialist in historical dance and movement. He has worked in theatre, musicals, opera, film and television.
On the time table it says
‘you will now receive a dance class’
Well actually we will not be teaching you how to dance.
You are not here to become dancers but to develop as actors
You have joined an Academy for Dramatic Art.
So, instead, you will learn how to use dance as a dramatic art.

Singing is probably the greatest form of human communication. The difference between speaking and singing is he sustaining of sound. When we sustain a sound we connect with emotion and when we add the intellectual property of words we move people. To help others find honesty and sincerity n this art form is my passion.
