Integrating principles from the Alexander Technique into a dance technique class can provide tools for facilitating a more coordinated use of the self. While the methodologies of Alexander Technique and dance technique may present differences, there are ways of applying the principles of Alexander within the context of a dance technique class that open doors to new ways of working. Six themes found in the Alexander work and ways of incorporating these principles in a dance class are presented. The experiential activities provided illustrate the themes, followed by suggestions for reinforcing these principles as they are applied to dance movement.
