The Alexander Technique, originally developed by an actor to save his own acting career, is the "glue" that integrates your acting, voice, speech and movement training. At its heart is the conviction that we are perfectly designed to express an impulse with honesty. Understanding how your physicality and your psychology are coordinated is the connection that Alexander provides. The AT is a process for recovering your responsiveness to the moment without reliance on habit, without awkwardness. It is the practice of a simple set of skills for letting go of habitual mannerisms and postures through which you can move and breathe with freedom and ease. You will be able to perform more efficiently and authentically, open to new experiences and to what partners have to offer. 

Class activities include awareness exercises, gentle hands-on feedback from the teachers, basic body-mapping, practicing the coordination of your mind and body in a theater exercise, improvisation or with text. 

The course content will focus on these four topics: The Actor's Body in Motion, The Actor's Breathing, The Actor's Presence, Ease of Being for Creativity.

Two Class Intensive Workshop
Fridays: March 1st & 8th
1:00pm - 3pm

Intensive Fee: $90Apply the Alexander Technique tool of Inhibition to your On-Camera auditions, in order to own your time from the moment you receive the sides to the moment you walk out of the audition room. We can easily get so ahead of ourselves, knowing that our audition time is only 5 minutes long, and that we have one shot to nail the scene right then! It can feel like time is not in your control, but how you relate to time in your audition is your choice. Discover tools to stay where you are at each moment in your preparation for and journey to your audition, so that you are completely present in the room and you draw the camera and the Casting Director to you. Owning time through inhibition will allow you to make choices moment by moment, as yourself and as the character in the scene. In this class, we will work with a camera on a tripod in the room and directly apply AT tools to audition sides. You will receive a copy of your clips after each class via Dropbox.

Actors will be given the option to bring in sides of their own or be given sides to prepare. There will also be time dedicated to cold reads.

This workshop is for actors who are currently auditioning.
