L1402: The Art of the Epic Speech in Splash! Spring 2011 (Apr. 16 - 17, 2011)
Ever wish none of it had happened? "So do all who live to see such times, but that is not for us to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us." So said Gandalf Stormcrow to Frodo Baggins, who faced a seemingly unsurmountable task ahead of him. It is often the case that such inconceivable acts heroism,, such as Frodo's quest to destroy the ring, are inspired and derived from the epic speeches that precede them. Yet, giving epic speeches holds a firm place in our day to day lives. Drawing cues from classics such as the Lord of the Rings and Braveheart, this class will explore techniques and methods for performing meaningful and emphatic epic speeches. Join us for a class that will inspire, enlighten, and instill a strength within you that you never knew existed.
