 Belinda gestures to a young actor with her hands near her chest. The young actor has her hand on the back of her neck. This is part of an Alexander Technique for Actors Class.

Alexander Technique is every actor’s foundational tool for self-care and for supporting creative work.

Each week we will bring the AT to an aspect of the rehearsal process: first reads, script analysis and character development, blocking, collaboration: working with partners, working with directors, improvising and making choices, surviving and growing as a actor throughout the run of a play or extended time on set.

This small group will allow for personal attention.
