Audition Master Class

Audition Master Class

Dialects Master Class

This Zoom master class for students ages 11-18 will be an introduction to learning accents, led by Lied Center teaching artist Sasha Dobson. Students will be introduced to the generalized sound of 3 different dialects: British, New York and American Southern. 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!
