New to the Alexander Technique? Or are you looking for a deeper understanding of how to use AT?
Using foundational Alexander Technique, this 4-week series offers both in-person classes and online practice sessions. You'll benefit from the best of both worlds: experiencing in-person weekly core work with hands-on support, and an online framework that will guide your exploration. You'll leave this deep Alexander Technique study feeling refreshed, with practical tools for being more connected and spontaneous in your work. This course is designed with performers in mind, but anyone who presents or deals with the public will benefit as well.

Intensive: AT and Auditioning
Own Your Time in Your On-Camera Auditions
with Holly Cinnamon
Fridays: March 1st & 8th
1:00pm - 3:00 pm
Intensive Fee: $90
Apply the Alexander Technique tool of inhibition to your on-camera auditions in order to own your time from the moment you receive the sides to the moment you walk out of the audition room. We can easily get so ahead of ourselves, knowing that our audition time is only 5 minutes long, and that we have one shot to nail the scene right then! It can feel like time is not in your control, but how you relate to time in your audition is your choice. Discover tools to stay where you are at each moment in your preparation for and journey to your audition, so that you are completely present in the room and you draw the camera and the Casting Director to you. Owning time through inhibition will allow you to make choices moment by moment, as yourself and as the character in the scene. In this class, we will work with a camera on a tripod in the room and directly apply AT tools to audition sides.
Actors will be given the option to bring in sides of their own or be given sides to prepare. There will also be time dedicated to cold reads. You will receive a copy of your clips after each class via Dropbox.
