Learn to become your most authentic and confident self
You’ve taken classes, learned your craft.You’ve done your homework, and know you have the talent and the drive required to book the job.But time and again it slips through your fingers. So what’s stopping you from being the performer you want to be? Casting directors say that they are not so much interested in a “look” as they are in seeing a dynamic, poised, engaging and present actor walk into their office. So when the pressure’s on, how do you learn to become the most authentic and confident YOU you can be?
The Alexander Technique gives performers the tools they need to become their most authentic selves.Students of this technique learn a practical approach to not only become more comfortable in auditions, but to learn to alleviate performance anxiety once they’ve booked the job so that they naturally experience more authenticity in their work.Suddenly performers are at ease and more comfortable in their bodies.
Most importantly, this work runs seamlessly under every acting technique and style. No matter where you train, this work will help you achieve your most authentic and dynamic performance.
With lessons in the Alexander Technique, you will find your training and instincts more available to you. You’ll learn how to stay free and flexible, how to remain poised and well-balanced during an audition, meeting with an agent, or even during a networking event.
