with Belinda Mello & Dana Calvey

AT Motion Center for Actors is offering a new 3 month membership from February through April. The Alexander Technique is a game-changing skill for your acting and your life.  Use it to better understand what it means to “just be yourself” in a role. And use AT to be confident and aware, embody character and bring honesty to your scenes and songs The more you practice, the more you're able to integrate the principles naturally, even under pressure in your acting process and your daily life.

Audition season can be especially chaotic for an actor -- that’s why we made the membership affordable and the studio an oasis from judgement or competition. Actors are welcome to come to as many or as few classes and wake-ups as their schedule allows -- guilt free!

We're offering a Free Trial Class on January 28th. See Below for Details!

The AT Actors Studio Membership Includes:

13 Weekly Alexander Technique Practice Classes on Tuesday from 7pm - 9pm  which includes 30-45 minutes of guided AT exercises followed by optional monologue, side, or song coaching in front of the group.

26 Online Group Wake-Up Practices via Google Hangouts by Dana Calvey to strengthen the consistency of the work

A Progressive Set of Self-Study Guides and Audio Files to build a daily practice.

3 Months of Community & Support

Description: Each Tuesday practice class begins with a practical approach to the Alexander Technique in group activities and hands-on guidance, followed by over an hour of individual work. Actors and Singers may choose to work on any material at any stage in their process. We will send out a weekly call for reservations to work in front of the group (4-6 people per class) on a first come / first serve basis.

Actors are welcome to attend as many or as few Tuesday evening classes & morning wake-up practices as their schedule allows over the three months. Online tools are optional and allow you to stay connected to the work when it fits your schedule. We want to be your homebase - a place to restore and prepare for your week.

Prerequisite: Previous Alexander Technique training (lessons or class). Or instructor approval. Email
