Alexander Technique 2.1

Fall 2019

Taught By: Cynthia Reynolds

Section: A

CRN: 1456

Credits: 3

Alexander 2 is a continuation and deepening of the work done last year in Alexander 1. In this second year, we will review, renew, and continue to develop the Alexander skills to gain a freer, more balanced and dynamic expression of the whole psycho-physical self. We will identify, own and make friends with our personal habitual patterns, and then work on skills for altering our physicality to develop characters quite different from ourselves. This semester the emphasis will be on using the Alexander skills to increase the range of “your instrument” in class with storytelling, we will continue to work through the Alexander lens on how you are “using” yourself to sustain and support the vocal goals that have been identified. Practice and repetition of the Alexander skills of attention, thinking in activity, sensory appreciation, non-doing, direction, and concious choice will be primary, so that you can begin to integrate and rely on them in your daily life, your other classes, your warm up, rehearsals, and performances.
