Alice MacDonald

In Movement Research’s weekly Alexander Technique class we will practice building awareness of our moving bodies/around our dance practices. We will illuminate the ways that we’re thinking about and using our bodies in order to create space for choice and change. We will consider and utilize ideas that allow for dancing with less tension and effort, and more ease and freedom. Together we will look at principles of the Alexander Technique and apply them to our dancing. Over the course of these 8 classes we will look at warming-up to dance, technical elements in dance, improvisation, performance, injury prevention and care, recuperation and rest. These classes are informed and influenced by your current curiosities and questions around dancing.
