Our faculty are Alexander Technique Teachers with artistic practices, who apply the AT principles to the art of teaching as well as their own artistic disciplines.  They are currently teaching at such schools as NYU Grad Acting, The New School, The American Academy of Dramatic Arts, Movement Research, Bennington College, The Balance Arts Center, Lincoln Center Education, and more.




Balance Arts Center


The workshop will be held at the new Balance Arts Center in NYC where we have expanded facilities to teach, explore and perform in a setting where the main focus and offering are lessons, courses, and events based on the Alexander Technique.




Freedom to Teach is a project developed by Tracy Einstein and Ann Rodiger to make the Alexander Technique accessible to teachers from all walks of life. Through awareness, concious control, and improving their use-of-self, all types of teachers can improve their efficacy and self-care. The inaugural program, designed for college-level dance and drama teachers, will take place in NYC in June of 2019. We hope to see you there!
