Courses in Theatre and Drama (Division 695)

172(235). Movement I. Permission of instructor. (2). (Excl).
Section 101 Posture & Moving in Arts & Business.
Based on the Alexander Technique, this class will examine movement fundamentals pertinent to the artist or the businessperson. These fundamentals are: posture as whole body movement, effort in relation to freedom of movement/body maintenance, and a working knowledge of anatomy in relation to muscular and skeletal structure. The objective of the class is to provide the students with an accurate working knowledge of the body and to begin the process of re-patterning random postural and stressful movement patterns that are not consistent with the natural balance and organization of the body. The primary source is a first-person study of the student's own kinesthetic pattern. Photo records are combined with anatomy and movement texts to further enhance the student's understanding of freedom of movement. Certified Alexander Instructor. (Schwiebert)
