The Alexander Technique is a specific form of mind/body practice that focuses on improving efficiency through learning and understanding movement and behaviour. Galvanizing Performance applies the teachings of this practice to the performing arts. Through theatre, music and dance, the contributors - all artists themselves - demonstrate how deliberate movement can improve an individual's art and benefit their general health and wellbeing.
