Musical Improv Workout | 1-day workshop


Musical Improv Workout | 1-day workshop | Flock Festival

A workshop about (improvised) singing, and how to warm up, cool down and the stuff in between.

Without scripts, choreographed steps or composed music the only thing we as improvisers bring to the stage is our body and our voice. So how can we take good care of ourselves before, after and also during a show?

As a trained musical theatre actress I have been coached by many different teachers with their own unique approaches to this vital topic. For more than 20 years I have collected tools and tricks that work best for me and I am excited to share them with you.

So bring some comfy clothes, stay hydrated and get ready to make funny noises! As my favorite voice coach says: “A siren a day keeps the doctor away!”

  • Friday June 28 — 10:00 to 16:00 (1h lunch break)
  • €120 for the one-day workshop
  • Location: Theaterplatform Pickup in Amsterdam-Noord. This location (and the bathroom) is on the ground floor.
  • This workshop is in easy English

About the teacher Ursula Anna Baumgartner

Born in Austria, Ursula trained professionally as an actress and a musical performer. After landing a series of roles in major musicals all over Germany (including Mamma Mia!, Hair, Aida, West Side Story, Buddy Holly), she moved back to her home country, where she is now an active member of the theatre and improv scene.

Ursula founded the ensemble „Salon Spontan“ to bring fully improvised musicals to the stage, she also explores physical improv alongside her duo partner Anne Rab as „Bemme & Melange“, as well as vying for Vienna’s ugliest Theatresports trophy as one of the TAG theatre’s improv „All Stars“. When Ursula isn’t making things up as she goes along, she can often be found performing theatre shows and musicals at Vienna’s „Theater der Jugend“, in a studio working as a voice actress or on tour with her duo „Baumgärtner“, which explores the parallels between humans and trees via original songs and scenes.
