ALEXANDER

Coach Richard Hempton’s unique approach to Alexander Technique is geared specifically for actors. This class will help in developing real and unique physical characters, connecting emotionally to a script though active decisions about tension and movement as well as help to reduce nervous habits that appear in every actor.

The Alexander Technique offers a clear and measured look into the basic principles that govern human movement. Learners will engage the body and mind to reduce tension in daily activities. The mind and body combination makes this training important for actors. The techniques can be applied through rehearsal routines, performances and even the lessening of nervous tension in auditions. We will focus on presence, performance anxiety, movement, speaking voice, connecting mind, emotions, and body. Each lesson will incorporate reading and discussion, hands-on guidance, as well as activities to illustrate Alexander concepts. This class requires a serious commitment from each learner.
