WORKSHOPS & MASTERCLASSES
Mr. Anthony has quickly established himself as a dynamic teacher on the operatic scene with his energetic, gritty, and physical style of work. His unique series of masterclasses based on movement and acting for singers have led him to numerous opera houses & universities across the country.
Dean Anthony is one of the most influential directors that I have had the privilege to work with. Working with Dean Anthony made me acutely aware of my own physicality, and it has enhanced my overall stage craft. Dean is incredibly thoughtful about each and every element in his productions, and he always finds a way to bring out the very best of each person on stage."

BODY WORK & ACTING CRAFT FOR SINGERS
"My series of classes and individual coachings focuses on total connection of body and thought as a performer, developing awareness of footwork, gestures, physical energy, the body of the character, and processing the text as a singing actor. This is not Yoga or Tai-chi, but these ancient art forms are truly based on the same centering, breath, and total body connection needed by a polished stage performer. These classes can work for everyone.
Often, breaking out of the voice studio or practice room can be a huge challenge, but incorporating these skills can quickly open a new world to your stage craft. My belief in this "craft" is not secondary to vocal technique, but a total balance to develop the complete packaged artist required for today's performer. I think you will dig it."
