Emily Faulkner

Emily Faulkner has been an AmSAT certified teacher of the Alexander Technique for over 20 years. During that time she explored the relationship between intention and movement extensively. Her passion, in particular, is improvisation and how our focus, both internal and external, affects the choices we make, and the experience we have. As a self-proclaimed movement junkie, Emily is interested in movement of any kind – does it feel good? Is it fun? Is it interesting? Is it healthy? This can be applied to skiing, basketball, swimming, sleeping, just sitting still, and of course dancing. Emily trained traditionally in ballet and modern, as well as various forms of improvisation including Skinner Releasing Technique. She is the artistic director of Emily Faulkner Dance which has shown work nationally and internationally. Currently, she teaches Alexander Technique in the Pain Management Department of the Veterans Administration Hospital in Brooklyn. She is an adjunct faculty member at RIAT, and she teaches a yearly workshop in presentation skills at the Université Dauphine in Paris and at the Jussieu in Paris. She’s served as a guest artist at Wesleyan University, and has skied extensively with Erik Bendix and Christophe Bachman. Finally, she’s beginning a master's program in Motor Control in order to better understand the neuroscience behind movement.
