Hello my friends,
It’s been a long time coming….you know that I explore the application of Alexander Technique to my dancing. I collect what I observe and discover and use it to help all my students.
And it’s finally here – Applied Alexander Technique® for Dancers – Dance Without Limits. It’s a totally new website and I’m excited to share it with you! In celebration, I made an offer of a free Alexander lesson to the first 10 dancers to ask.
One of the dancers who took me up on the free lesson was here today. In the middle of her lesson, she asked a very intelligent question about how to move her shoulders without neck tension.
It tied into her lesson, which began with releasing tension from her back and neck and connecting that with movement of the legs.
So we worked on moving shoulders and arms without neck tension or contraction. I taught her the first steps for releasing tension from her neck and then, how to think differently in movement so her arm movement connected more from her back. She could feel the difference –
Sometimes I think of my arms as expanding out from my back, like wings of a big, graceful bird. It’s not enough that they connect; I want my wings to be like an eagle…expansive…wide…open and free.
How would you like your arms to be? What would dancing be like if you could be more free?
I love helping dancers find freedom to move and there are three places left for a free Alexander lesson. Contact me!
