Course Overview

About this Course:

Hi there. I'm Marinda Botha

Thank you for considering taking this course.

If you regularly need to speak or teach in front of others or you need to record videos where you yourself are on-camera then this course is for you. These series of exercises are geared towards warming up your body for performance be it a public speaking event you need to do a voice over gig or performance on screen or stage.

I'm a trained actor and voice over artist. I've been in the industry for 16 years having worked and trained in Europe and South Africa.

I am trained in stage and screen performance voice overs physical theatre clowning and overall physical awareness of body alignment.

I am primarily a voice over artist and trainer with clients from across the globe. I have a deep love for movement understanding your body as a performer looking after your health and utilizing this tool of yours to the best of your ability.

We will look at Body alignment Breath control Articulation Warming up the resonators and many more!

Basic knowledge:

  • No prior physical ability is required. These exercises work well for all ages and body types. They are extremely safe - and effective!
  • A willingness to learn and improve.
  • You only have one body. You need to take care of it.
  • A room where you can practice. Perhaps a mirror to watch yourself in as you do the exercises - though not essential.
  • Soft soled shoes or as I prefer go barefoot!
