Working With Performers

Today I had the privilege of working with young musicians and actors in the School of Fine Arts at the University of Connecticut. Associate Professor of Flute Dionne Jackson invited me to give a masterclass for her students and students in the music and drama program. I worked with six performers for 15 minutes each while an audience of their peers looked on, and even in that short amount of time big changes were happening! The students shed layers of tension which allowed them to breathe better, connect with themselves, and perform with more ease. The Alexander Technique is vital to a performing arts education—I was so grateful to have the opportunity to work with this talented group of students.
