SUNY Broome Theater is offering a lecture demonstration at 11 a.m. Tuesday, May 14, on the famous Alexander Technique.
The interactive session will be given by our Alexander teacher for the past eight years, Frances Robertson. Mostly theater and music students have benefited from this valuable course so far.
“We are offering this opportunity for faculty who may not know about AT. It is a system for body awareness designed to promote well-being by ensuring minimum effort in maintaining postures and carrying out movements. Students from many disciplines can benefit from this valuable self-care technique,” said Associate Professor Katherine Bacon. “Nursing students could definitely benefit, but also anyone in the health sciences, criminal justice or business. It is a required course in many theater conservatories and some prestigious universities worldwide, but its advantage can be to all of us.”
Please watch the short video that is linked here for a quick introduction to this 100-year-old method.
This one-credit course is offered only in the fall semester and we are fortunate to have our expert teacher, Frances Robertson, teaching it. Frances graduated from Boston University and has held high positions in The American Society of The Alexander Technique. She is also involved with organizing the annual meeting for the International Societies of the Alexander Technique. Besides her time here at SUNY Broome, Frances has been teaching the Technique privately for over 25 years both in New York and Pennsylvania.
Join us from 11 to 11:50 a.m. Tuesday, May 14, in the Angelo Zuccolo Little Theatre.
