AT for the Actor Part Deux

Rate of Pay: 

December 11 & 12 9am-12pm

Refine your craft with the Alexander Technique Part Deux:  This follow up workshop to Alexander Technique for the Actor, will dive deeper into developmental movement and transition into maximizing your expression.  With the Alexander Technique as your foundation, we will continue to build the layers of Acting with text and imagination, pulling from various methods and how AT continues to be the "glue" that integrates your acting, voice, speech and movement training.   A psychophysical tool for body, breath, and imagination, it teaches actors how to release habitual tension and instead bring freedom, poise, and presence to performance.  

The class is open to anyone age 18 and over with an interest and willingness to commit to the intensive demands of actor training, however, a phone or Zoom interview is necessary before acceptance into the workshop.

Fee for the class is $90.  A $25 deposit will be required to hold your place. The deposit is refundable if you cancel your registration by November 27. The balance is to be paid by December 4  and is non-refundable.  Cash, check, PayPal, or Venmo is accepted.  Students who have taken AT for the Actor via Up&Back or the Guthrie receive a 10% discount.   

Register by emailing  Previous AT with Eli is not required, though some knowledge of the technique is preferred.
