The Actors Centre

Alexander Technique for Actors

WHAT IS IT? A 6-week course designed to introduce you to the core principles of FM Alexander’s discoveries and show you how to apply them to your craft. HOW WILL IT WORK? In each of the classes we will explore key concepts and practices: freedom, expansion and orientation as we move in space; natural breathing, and the difference between diaphragmatic and abdominal breathing; how to recover equilibrium when under stress; conscious use of neuroplasticity; psycho-physical presence; authenticity in performance. WHAT DO YOU GET OUT OF IT? You will learn practical techniques that you can begin to apply immediately, augmenting your knowledge week by week. You will also, with the help of the teachers, experience what it is like to have more freedom of choice, to move with greater ease and to find the space in which your own creativity can emerge. Participants must attend all sessions. Price: £45


This workshop runs over six days

April 6, 13, 20, 27, May 4


Sara Khoroosi

Sara is an Alexander Technique Teacher currently teaching at the Westminster Alexander Centre. She has a performance background so has a very keen interest in the application of the Technique to performance to deliver continuing development within the profession. She graduated from The Westminster Alexander Training Course (WATC), a College which had a particular emphasis on the Performing Arts and thus led Sara to continue her teaching in this area. Previously she has jointly led three courses here at the Actors Centre, with many attendants going on to have 1-1 lessons with her. Her experience also involves live on-stage teaching at Brighton Festival, working with dancers at Rose Bruford University, and musicians from the Royal Academy and College of Music London.
