A Safe-Space for Dancers to Hone Their Vocal Audition Skills
In Collaboration with MM Alumni, Katie Travis & Kaitlyn Davis
If you identify as a dancer and find that fear manifests when it’s time to sing solo, this month-long audition workshop is for you.
In collaboration with two Motivated Community artists, Katie Travis & Kaitlyn Davis, Sing Through Your Fear is designed to help dancers work through their nerves and gain more confidence for upcoming vocal auditions. Together, we work to identify the origin of these fears, explore how they affect the voice, and learn to sing through them. It's time to take control of your voice.
