Stage technique becomes subject of NE workshop

By Finesse Love/reporter

An Alexander Technique workshop will be held to help students overcome limitations in movement and thinking.

The technique was created by an Australian actor named F.M. Alexander who crafted it to educate and help people have better posture, coordination and breathing.

The techniques will teach about the skeletal system and methods to release points in the body to freely perform.

“This technique can be applied in more than one area of life, not just fine arts,” said NE voice instructor Jeanene Craig, who has used the system, which she says has enriched her life personally.

Phyllis Richmond will conduct the workshop 12:30-5 p.m. Oct. 25 in College Hall (NCAB 1111) on NE Campus.

Richmond received her Alexander Technique teacher certification in England in 1991. Since then, she has taken her expertise and taught the technique around the United States at universities and professional organizations.

Richmond is the editor at AmSAT news and has a master’s in dance education from Columbia University Teachers College in New York City. She’s also a member of the British Society of Teachers of the Alexander Technique and the American Society for the Alexander Technique.

Attending this workshop will allow participants to get in touch with their bodies while having freedom with their voices and acting skills, Craig said.
