What are the benefits of IMAGE TECH for dancers™?
Image Tech for Dancers™ is a weight-bearing physical and mental preparation for a dancer to use before a technique class. 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 significant groundwork for dancing.
“I have very long bowed legs… and they are a bit hard for me to control sometimes. [IMAGE TECH] has shown me that I can use the correct line of energy to control my legs.”
“I identified with [IMAGE TECH] automatically… all of a sudden I was able to experience the movements and the start of a ballet class in a way that felt good in my body. [It] revolutionized how I take a class.”
“IMAGE TECH really helped me to address my body based on what’s available… I feel that I’m a lot more confident in the way I dance.”
