The following is a bit about the class I will be facilitating. We will be doing a thing I like to call “Body, Breath & Voice for Writers”.
In this class we will explore a series of artistic and fun disciplines, and then observe the directions these activities take our writing. Movement, breathing, meditation, flash-writing, stretching, drama games and vocal play will be utilized toward a goal of expansive creativity and joy. If the spirit moves this class may culminate in an intuitive and no-holds-barred Soundscape Performance.
1. Yoga Mat and/or blanket
2. Easy-to-move-in, comfortable clothing
3. Bring any/all musical instruments you would like
4. Writing implements
5. A willingness to try anything
It will be a lot of fun.

This is my Regular Head Shot and stuff…
I am a singer, musician, voice instructor, teacher, lecturer, conductor, yoga teacher, breath therapist and minor writer… that is, until I get my book done, and then I’ll be a “major” writer, I guess; or maybe just a more legitimate minor one.
I was born in Calgary, and I now live in Edmonton (TRAITOR!)
I love the Arts; I’ve started a professional chamber choir, conducted choirs, opera companies, orchestras and RENT, sung in choirs since I was five, and recently I was Cinderella’s Prince in Sonheim’s “Into the Woods”. I play the guitar and piano a little, and cannot rap whatsoever.
I like summer, learning about mySelf, and I am a cat person.
And I went to see Rammstein last May – now THAT was poetry: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jixhLW3grPA
Speaking of which, here’s some poetry I have made; I recommend the “Crossing Bridges” Audio Clips: http://www.spirituschamberchoir.ca/recordinginfo.html
I am REALLY looking forward to WordsWorth this year; hello to all returning and all that will be new.
All those that appear here rock largely: this will be an experience you will treasure forever.
