Students will learn and demonstrate the art of ventriloquism by learning the beginning techniques such as lip control, puppet manipulation, vocal range, illusionary arts, and more. Students are responsible for providing their own ventriloquist figure. They have the choice between soft puppets or hard figures (aka "dummies"). This class does not allow food or gum, as it can not only get in the way of learning the technique, but can distract other students. Students must also adhere to using family friendly joke material material, as there might be children present. No class June 25th.
