This course will give students the tools to learn dialects deeply and properly, rather than mimicking, help them discover and develop how different sounds are created phonetically, learn the origins of each accent, build self-confidence, and work collaboratively with fellow actors. No preparation required –just a willingness to learn and try something new! Participants will need a computer or tablet with a front-facing camera and microphone.
