Performance & The Arts

Alexander Technique for Performance and the ArtsThe hallmarks of the Alexander Technique are creativity, spontaneity, and adaptability to change.” – A.R. Alexander

F.M. Alexander designed the technique to serve his needs as a performing artist. 

All the work done in rehearsal can be manifested in the presence of an audience by using the Alexander Technique. Developing new skills is more effective when a performer knows this work.

Actor Alan Rickman once said:

With the best intentions, the job of acting can become a display of accumulated bad habits, trapped instincts and blocked energies. Working with the Alexander Technique has given me sightings of another way… Mind and body, work and life together. Real imaginative freedom…

Alexander Technique for Voice and Breath

Voice and Breath

Our ability to communicate depends on freedom in our breathing and vocal mechanisms. Your voice resonates through your whole body and can become restricted by muscle tension. The Alexander Technique enhances your overall coordination, and this improves your breathing and vocal quality. 

Many famous singers and actors use the Alexander Technique in their practices. It is taught as part of the curriculum at most colleges, conservatories, and universities that train actors, dancers, and musicians.
