Williamson Movement


Class Description
The Williamson Movement Technique is a method of physical training for the actor created by Loyd Williamson and based on his work with Sanford Meisner.

This Technique is unlike any other physical training for the actor due to its focus on how the body processes experiences through the five senses opening the actor to his or her own impulses, and freeing them for truthful and vivid behavior.

Williamson Movement was originally created to work in concert with the Meisner technique. 

This physical practice is especially helpful in the creation of the inner life of the actor: the imagination and the emotional connection to the circumstances and relationships of the imaginary world of a script and how it can shape the behavior that flows out of this connection; it concentrates on freedom in the muscles that control breath; physical balance and alignment; an open throat and clear vibration of sound; and the creation of characters that embody this technique.

Sessions are broken into 8-week modules.
The study of the FULL Williamson technique requires upwards of 6 total modules to uncover the depth and breadth of the work.

Prerequisite: This is not a dance class.  Previous dance or movement experience is not required.
