Acting/Performance

pic06Discovering an authentic presence and ease throughout the body is essential to any successful performance.  We all innately have this presence, yet we often get in the way of it.  Studying Alexander re-awakens your connection to your unique presence.  It opens up breath coordination and improves vocal quality.  It changes patterns of chronic tension and stress allowing one to be more innately natural and at ease.  It cultivates new habits that relieve pain and prevent injury.  It frees impulses and response patterns so repeated performances stay fresh and new.
