“IMAGE TECH for dancers is a practice that truly changed me as both a dancer and a student, so I jumped at the opportunity to move into sharing this technique with others! The process of teacher training offered me clarity and deep insight into the technique within my own body, and enabled me to grasp the big picture and minute details of this practice. It is my belief that this deep embodiment is necessary as a teacher of the technique, and we were given ample time for both embodiment and understanding. Alexandra ignites curiosity within us all, and I am inspired to ignite this same curiosity within my students of ITD in the future.”
