Nancy Krebs is the first individual to be named a Master Teacher in both the Voice and Body Training by the Lessac Institute. She was first introduced to this approach while in graduate school at the Dallas Theater Center and has used it extensively in both her own professional acting and singing career, as well as her teaching and coaching career. She is much sought after as a dialect/vocal coach for professional theatre productions. She teaches the Lessac Kinesensic Training to students on the high school level at the famed Baltimore School for the Arts. The arts programs there are pre-professional training, with the focus being on the preparation of students for careers in the arts. She has been on the faculty as the senior voice instructor since 1981. Her own studio, The Voiceworks, focuses not only on individuals who wish to improve their speaking and singing voices, but also on clients who seek training in voice-over technique, accent reduction, and presentation skills. She teaches the Lessac work solely as her approach-- because the Lessac training in voice, speech and movement offers a unique way of learning by integrating all three to deepen communication, human behavior and creativity. Based on sensory (kinesensic) learning and awareness, Lessac training is a bio-sensory approach that uses body and vocal energy states to reveal a largely untapped reservoir of knowledge, spirit, and perception. Research by Arthur Lessac in the areas of voice, speech, body training, and clinical therapy has revealed a dynamic discipline applicable to theatre, concerts, athletics, therapy and personal well-being. The purpose of the Lessac Institute is to increase human potential, foster self-teaching, and promote creativity in common, professional and artistic endeavors. The Lessac Kinesensic Training can be found in colleges and universities, secondary schools, research institutions, theatre companies, and workshops both in the United States and abroad.
