The Movement Training program largely consists of two parts. During the first part, students focus on the body. Subjects taught include: standing and moving in a firm, yet relaxed, manner; finding and understanding the origins of tension and how one is able to deal with this; the maintenance of the breathing structures; how to warm-up and cool-down before and after singing; moving and falling in a natural though controlled manner; space awareness; moving alone and together.
During the second part, students inquire into the expressive possibilities of movement. Through specific research exercises, students explore and widen: their personal scope of movement and expression; their observational and analyzing capacities; how to feel and use the tension being created between all the singers on stage; how to translate a libretto or musical line into movement and spacing; how to tell a story or express thoughts and feelings without words.
