Freedom for Acting: Acting and Alexander Technique

Comprehensive 9-week course - 2015

Classes and Online learning for actors, teachers and coaches


Discover the impact of the principles behind the Alexander Technique. Build your craft, and transform it: You will learn to enliven your presence, deepen your sensitivity and embrace your authenticity.

“Your continued and successful tutelage in getting me to relax, loosen up, and embrace my uniqueness contributed enormously to my success.” – Rick Johnston, actor in NYC, on booking a role.

Our goal is to make learning about Acting and the Alexander Technique available to you wherever you are, whenever you have time. We have put together 18 hours of instruction so that you can continue to study with master teachers of the Alexander Technique throughout the year.

This progressive series is based on the Alexander Technique and specifically focused for performers.      

  • Take the class live, join us in the studio in NYC 
  • or take the class through streaming video from another location: observe, follow along and try out the material on your own or with a group of fellow actors
  • 6-months of access to video of each class to review and practice on your own.
  • Receive downloadable materials for independent self-study.  

Upon completion of the full course you will receive a Certificate of Study from the Balance Arts Center and AT Motion following the completion of the course.
