ACCENTS AND DIALECTS FOR ACTORS

Are you an actor, or actor-in-training, who’s interested in learning how to speak believably in a variety of different accents and dialects?

 Let’s say you’re from the midwest, but your character is from the Bronx, or that you’re auditioning for the part of a character from Germany, Russia, Italy or Australia, or a totally different part of the United States? Would you feel comfortable and confident auditioning for the part?

In this class, helpful to both voiceover actors and “regular” actors, you’ll get practice speaking all of these accents and more, along with guidance and helpful tips from the instructor, an established voiceover actor. Note: You can take this class just for fun, or apply it toward our Voiceover Acting Certificate program.
