Oct 9 to Dec 11/Oct 19 to Dec 14: Effortless Performance—The Alexander Technique for Actors with Jeremy Cohn at Green Shirt Studio

We are all born with an innate knowledge of how to move and express ourselves. We just have to learn how to get our of our own way.

The Alexander Technique has been helping performers to let go have habits of movement that block their full expressive potential for over a century. Join 1600-hour certified teacher Jeremy Cohn on an 8-week journey of self exploration where you will learn about your natural movement mechanisms and how to stop interfering with them. You will leave with strategies to create more ease, breath, and fluidity in your performance and a more connected body and self. An excellent companion to Green Shirt’s Meisner training or any acting method. Come learn this profoundly transformative technique usually only available at the conservatory level and used by actors such as Kevin Kline, Lupita Nyong’o, Annette Benning, John Cleese, Hugh Jackman, Ian McKellan, and many others.
