Voice and Dialect


Throughout the year Rogues West provides actors a range of voice and dialect training to prepare actors to meet the professional demands of the industry when approaching roles and/or characters from diverse backgrounds.

DIALECT

 

STANDARD AMERICAN

Speaking in Standard American is crucial to your success in the Casting room. Casting Directors and Producers demand a real Standard American Dialect, which is much more than learning a new way to say ‘about’ and ‘sorry’. Trish Allen is a highly sought after Dialect Coach whose proven method will make your American Dialect ring true in both the audition room and on-set.

STANDARD AMERICAN SPEAK! 

This dynamic new class is designed for those actors who want to master their Standard American dialect within the pace and cadence of texts from prolific American screenwriters and playwrights. Actors will exponentially sharpen their skill set in this challenging, fun and fast-paced class. Discount pricing available for returning/continuing actors.

SPEECH & MOVEMENT

 

VOICE & TEXT IN ACTION

As an actor, YOUR VOICE is one of your most important tools. This exciting class includes all the basics of voice work: relaxation, breath and physical awareness, neutral sound, resonance, range, articulation and much more. Through individual and group exercises, you will learn to integrate breath, sound, image, movement and text in a deeply personal way, making the text your own, removing physical and psychological blocks that are inhibiting your vocal expression.
