[motion picture] Demonstrates the proper blend of speech and body training which leads to effective use of the voice in theatre.  Shows theatre students performing exercises designed to develop a sense of proper body alignment; foster efficient breathing, emphasizing the abdominal muscles and the diaphragm; and refine coordination of movement and voice.  Uses models, animation, and cine-fluoroscopy to record the internal physiological reactions of the upper torso during both proper and improper breathing.
