Ordinarily applicants will have had a number of private lessons, will have an understanding of what the work entails and be motivated to train.
During the course of the morning students receive 'turns' (short individual lessons), work in small groups of two to four developing the skilled use of their hands and have time to work on themselves. In the larger class group Alexander’s books are read and discussed, as is other relevant material including basic anatomy and physiology. Each day we also explore a particular procedure often related to developmental movement, or voice work or the application of the Technique to a particular activity. Students also receive two private lessons with the director each term.
ETABA enjoys a close association and exchange of teachers with the Uruguayan school (EUTA) and receives many guest teacher from abroad – England, Spain, Holland, Australia and the United States.
