Alexander Technique 5-day Residential Workshop
University of North Carolina School of the Arts
July 15-20, 2019 (No 2018 Course)
No matter where you are in your study and interest in the Alexander Technique, we invite you to come and learn in the beautiful setting of University of North Carolina School of the Arts, Winston-Salem.
The North Carolina Residential Workshop is open to anyone interested in the Alexander Technique who wants the opportunity to work with a variety of highly skilled Alexander Technique teachers in a community setting. Our workshop has proven to be an excellent introduction to anyone new to the technique. People currently studying will find the support they need to clarify and deepen their work. Some of our participants are considering becoming teachers of the Alexander Technique and have an opportunity to meet and to work with teachers from several training courses and Alexander teaching traditions; some are enrolled in teacher-training programs; and some are practicing teachers returning to study with friends and Master Teachers. All come to be inspired and refreshed.
Our aim is to create an intensive learning experience. There will be large and small group sessions as well as individual Alexander lessons. Optional classes will be offered in related studies such as, Yoga, Alexander Technique in Daily Activities, Sports Skills, Relaxation, Authentic Movement, Voice, and Performance Skills.
The faculty is an ensemble of experienced teachers and long term friends. This year marks our 35th annual East Coast course.
Each week will offer practical, in-depth study. Study includes several private lessons with master teachers, a small daily homeroom group in which you work closely with one teacher for the whole week, and a variety of afternoon and evening classes and activities from which to choose.
