SUMMER POSTSCRIPT: WORKSHOPS EXPLORING THE DART PROCEDURES

ALEXANDER TECHNIQUE: DEVELOPING ONE’S EXPERTISE AT NOT BEING AN EXPERT

“All our efforts in the way of education should be to create conditions in which growth will continue through life, conditions in which the stagnation which accompanies fixed habits will be impossible.”
– F.M. Alexander

I had a marvelous time this summer with seven fellow Alexander Teachers, some teachers of long experience, others recent graduates, and teachers in training. In a series of four workshops we explored the central nervous system, the Dart Procedures, and developmental movement. We found that the procedures provided an excellent framework for self-discovery, for clarifying our sense of direction, and for preventing fixity of movement and ideas in our teaching.

Check out the WORKSHOPS PAGE if you would like to be a part of one of my fall groups. One is for AT teachers, one is for dancers,/performers/movement educators; and one is for bodyworkers! All my favorite tribes!

Special thanks to the lovely summer group for their insights and questions:
