Learn to move and think consciously rather than habitually with the psycho-physical re- education method used by thinkers, movers, and artists of all disciplines, including those in the Judson Dance Theater.

The Alexander Technique is a means of identifying mental and physical habits that can interfere with our ability to attend to the moment and make choices. Beginning with the assumption that we are perfectly designed for movement and balance, we engage our mind to undo layers of interference, creating opportunity for understanding how we use (or misuse) ourselves, and promoting self-reflection and a profound self-knowledge that is deeply helpful for the artist.
