Holly's journey of self-discovery as an Alexander Technique student and now teacher has completely changed her life as well as her work as an actor. She has applied the tools and principles of AT directly to her auditions to great success. This has allowed her to discover a whole new ownership, sense of self and pleasure in the audition process.
The AT tools can offer you concrete ways to own your space, own your time and own your choices as an actor in the audition room. They offer you the freedom to change your perception of the audition room, find resources and scene partners in your surroundings, combat the urge to narrow your attention to the people behind the table or your idea of yourself in the room and instead expand your field of attention to the possibilities available to you at every moment. In this way, you get to start to play with the choices you have in the room and in time. It can even become fun!
When you work this way, people take note. Their eyes are drawn to you... something mysterious is happening and they are not sure what but they want in. You become the center of your audition experience, instead of throwing your energy at the wall behind the auditioners' heads, instead you are at the center of the moment and their attention is drawn to you.
Holly has witnessed some powerful and magical transformations and performances by applying this work. She has worked with actors, singers, dancers and musicians to own their time, space and performance. You can find testimonials from past students she has worked with here.
Holly is currently offering group classes through the AT Motion Center for Actors. The next class is March 1st and 8th, 2019 from 1-3pm and will be applying the AT tools to On-Camera auditions! More info at: www.alextechmotion.com or email Holly through the contact page to register.
See you in class!
