Alice MacDonald is an Alexander Technique Teacher (AmSAT) based in Brooklyn, NY and Bath, ME. She is passionate about helping people connect more deeply with their bodies and their movement so they can experience healing, support, sustainability, and joy in their movement. After years of managing injuries and chronic pain while dancing and performing, Alice began studying the Alexander Technique which allowed her to embody supportive, mindful ways of moving and being. Alice teaches Alexander Technique in Maine, NYC, and online. She is currently on faculty at the Balance Arts Center (NYC), Movement Research (NYC), and the American Academy of Dramatic Arts (NYC). She has presented and taught at Bates Dance Festival (ME), Hunter College Dance Dept. (NYC), Peridance (NYC), SUNY Purchase College (NY), The New School (NYC), and others. Alice’s teaching is influenced by experiential study in MindBody Therapy, meditation, dance and improvisation, anatomy and kinesiology, developmental movement, and many other process-oriented modalities.

About Alice's Weekly Alexander Technique Class:

Movement Research’s weekly Alexander Technique class provides space to embody ideas that foster our capacity for being present, available, and adaptable in our dancing and our daily lives. Together we will practice building awareness around how we are moving, thinking, and interacting with ourselves. We will explore the opportunities in our awareness for creating supportive choices in our thought and movement experiences. In addition, we will spend time looking at anatomy, exploring self-touch, and apply principles of the Alexander Technique to daily movements like walking and sitting.

History with Movement Research:

Alice was an MR intern 2009-2011, Production Coordinator for Movement Research at the Judson Church and Open Performance 2011-2014, and the Programs & Events Associate in 2017.
