What we speak becomes the house we live in

Over the course of the Foundation Year, we discover the power of the spoken word, build skills for connecting through communication, and develop an artistic approach to living language.

Our Foundation Curriculum includes:

  • Exploring how the phrases, words, and sounds of our speech create dynamic meaning

  • Experiencing the relationships among movement, gesture, and speaking

  • Discovering the nature and role of the spoken word in dialogue between oneself and others

  • Developing an awareness of one's breath and voice

  • Raising into consciousness the form, rhythm, and movement of speech


The Foundation Year program takes place from September to June. Please email for information on class schedule, tuition, and housing.
