Full Force Freedom: Alexander Technique for performers and speakers
Three Class Series
Classes are held from 7pm to 9pm
As a performer, your body is your instrument. To offer fully connected and risk-taking performances, you must have a tension-free and pain-free body so that you are light, loose, and fluid under any circumstances. This three class series for dancers, actors, and performers incorporates body alignment, vocal freedom and emotional connectedness through kinesthetic awareness. With Sharon’s sophisticated hands-on guidance, you will heighten your awareness so that you can easily release interfering and distracting tension. Learning how to be relaxed, present and physically open, you can step outside of your comfort zone and into the unknown with Full Force Freedom.
You will leave with:
- Practices to calm and ground yourself before auditions and performances
- A warm up that emphasizes alignment and fine-tuning of your body, breath and voice
- The ability to stop pushing and allow for a powerful presence and expressive voice
- Injury prevention techniques
- Applying alignment, awareness, and release to speaking, physicalizing and relating to your ensemble and audience
$50 per individual class
$120 for three class series

Fire in the Belly Women’s Dance Circle
with Sharon Jakubecy
Next Date TBA
When women dance together, they release their worries, overwhelm, and burdens of the day and celebrate the joy and opportunity of life!
Join Sharon Jakubecy, speaker, choreographer, dancer and Alexander Technique teacher, and other women who are changing the world, for the Fire in the Belly Women’s Dance Circle. Women with Fire in the Belly are driven to align with each other, create exponential impact on the world, and tap into their full potential so that they can inspire the full potential of other women. This is a great opportunity to connect with like-minded women who want to share and collaborate with their Fire in the Belly.
We will begin with a quieting and grounding exercise that will bring you into your body and moving with your breath. Then we will warm up every muscle with attention to alignment and ease to feel loose and open. Our music maker Stephen James will pound rhythms that will make you shake your hips and undulate your spine. You will sweat. You will pant. You will throw off tightness and strain in order to fall back in love with your body and bur with the Fire in YOUR belly.
The Dance Circle will end with journaling or drawing so that any new ideas and inspirations can be recorded. Finally we will delve into a quietness that is your wisdom and joy!
$20 per person
