Do dancers and singers breathe differently? Performance specialists have thought so for centuries. But what happens when we're dancing and singing at the same time? Dancing with Voice takes you from theatre to classroom to laboratory to rehearsal with professional performers, actors in training, directors, choreographers and world-class physiotherapists. In her third book, Joan Melton explores the training and work of actors, dancers and singers via clinical and practice-based research and comes up, not with a method, but with a perspective on performance training. She challenges the compartmentalization still found in most conservatory and university programs, and proposes a more collaborative approach to communication across disciplines.show more
