Reviews

"So few other books offer practical guidance or outline experiential practices that help dancers understand how to apply the Alexander Technique, the art and science of embodied living. Nettl-Fiol and Vanier eloquently and clearly help readers learn how to access their bodily sensations and utilize them to organize efficient, easy, and elegant movement."--Glenna Batson, associate professor of physical therapy at Winston-Salem State University
"An articulate and accessible in-depth synthesis of the Alexander Technique and traditional dance training. With clear, intriguing, and insightful writing, the authors demonstrate a depth of knowledge in somatic practice theory."--Kathryn Daniels, Chair, Dance Department at Cornish College of the Arts, Seattle
"This is a valuable book for the dance industry. While the book contains a considerable wealth of information, the writing is clear and the exercises are easy to follow. It would be possible to use exercises directly from the book or DVD. . . . Dancers will benefit from owning this book, but it will be most valuable in the hands of dance teachers, who can pass on the information through experiential workshop sessions to their students."--Research in Dance Education
