Hello my friends!
I’m excited to teach Alexander Technique at Cheryl Burke Dance.
If Alexander Technique is new to you, here’s what it is and more importantly, why to learn it, in a nutshell.
When you dance, is your neck free? Do you stiffen it a little…or a lot? Do you struggle for balance or relax into it?
When your neck is contracted and stiff, it pulls your head down into your neck and shoulders. It may push your head forward or pull it back down into your shoulders. Either way, it puts you off balance and out of alignment. It creates tension throughout the body, slows you down and shortens your line.
Alexander Technique helps you release tension patterns in movement that are so habitual, we don’t even feel them. It focuses on the freedom of the head and neck in movement and creates freedom and poise.
Come try it! Come discover how free you can be!
See you soon – Saturday, September 22nd at 11:00 am – 1:00 pm. Call the studio at 650.864.9150 or drop me a line if you’re planning to come.
