Learn new ways to use Shakespeare's poetry and plays to warm up your body, increase your breath capacity, strengthen your voice, improve speech agility and enjoy the magic of his writing.

*Due to the nature of our social engagement programs and to protect to privacy of participants, we will not be recording or archiving these programs. By not recording, it's our hope that participants feel free and comfortable to share and that the program provides an intimate and “in the moment” experience.*

PD Health @ Home is presented by the Light of Day Foundation, whose generosity has made this programming possible.
