The Actor’s Body

This class introduces you to movement fundamentals and builds physical awareness, flexibility, and strength; with specific attention to the physical challenges, limits, and acquired habits of protection with which the older actor may contend. Physical practices such as Feldenkrais are incorporated to help improve the quality and range of movement, physical balance and posture, and to enhance vitality. Physical improvisation brings greater freedom in working with impulses moment-to-moment. You will discover how this work enhances stage presence, vocal support and projection, and opens up a broader range of creative possibilities for the physical structuring of a role.
