What are the benefits of IMAGE TECH for dancers?
IMAGE TECH is a weight-bearing, somatic technique consisting of standing exercises that increase awareness, alignment, and stability while preparing dancers for demonstrative vertical dance techniques. It was originally created to connect the dots between Alexander Technique, the work of Irene Dowd, and ballet class. The method addresses how one incorporates the important information of these somatic techniques into their body while standing and provides a significant groundwork for dancing.
