CE Summer: Alexander Technique Workshop

NEC - Continuing Education • 290 Huntington Avenue BostonMA  02115 Organized by New England Conservatory of Music Preparatory School and School of Continuing Education

About this event

Description

This course is closed to further registration.

Our body is our main instrument; the Alexander Technique (AT) helps us "tune" it to help us stay at peak performance level. By addressing everyday posture, coordination, breath and habits, the Alexander Technique offers freedom from excess tension, prevents injury and helps with chronic pain.

For over 100 years the Alexander Technique (AT) has helped musicians, actors, dancers, athletes, and others get rid of unnecessary tensions and perform with ease and enjoyment.

In these experimental workshops the students will work on developing their awareness of how they usually interfere with the body's natural alignment and coordination and learn tools to change the habits that may be causing fatigue or pain.

Each class will have a lecture as well as an experimental, hands-on, awareness games component, and student performances to apply the tools learned to actual performing.


All participants must meet NEC COVID-19 guidelines. For current requirements please visit this link to the NEC website.
