Alexander Technique and West Coast Swing in Toronto
November 16, 2019 @ 11:00 am - November 17, 2019 @ 5:00 pm
Whether you are an experienced or novice dancer this workshop can change your performance.
The Alexander Technique is a tantalizing and delightful method whose aim is to transform the way we use ourselves to find greater ease in whatever the activity. It helps us truly find the freedom in our breath and being. With the unusual, yet gentle Alexander touch, impulses long asleep or hidden in “blind spots” will awaken in us. Something begins or rather takes us over, so lovely and playful (even if tears spring to our eyes), that before we know it, we are being sung and danced and filled as if by an almost magical presence and connection. With the release of a seemingly new, yet innate strength within us, a real confidence is experienced. In a flash of knowing, even if we don’t know what it is we know, we can’t help but dance with more abandoned pleasure and spontaneity. We can’t help but sing and dance and feel alive with a whole new sense of meaning and pleasure.
• Find more presence and poise in movement.
• Experience the delicious flow of spontaneity and authentic movement without worry or fear.
• Improve sense of balance, rhythm, and dynamic in your dance.
