Alumni Workshares

Once a term alumni and training course teachers get together at LCATT to share work.  This offers the opportunity for graduates to work with the LCATT community of teachers and to present ideas and work to the group.
At present these are still happening on Zoom.

Workshares for All Teachers

We hope the next free in-person workshare will happen again in the near future.
All teachers are welcome to the workshares at LCATT. You can just drop in or contact Roger – kidd.roger@gmail.com for more details.


Workshops and Talks

LCATT organises regular activities including talks from other disciplines that may relate to the Alexander Technique, forums with presentations about inspiring work being done within the Alexander Technique and workshops for visiting teachers from abroad. (See below for further information).

WORKSHOPS FOR TEACHERS

We are not running in-person workshops at the moment but occasionally do them online.

Past teacher’s workshops have included one with Missy Vineyard, author of a ‘How You Stand, How You Move, How You Live’; Lucia Walker, dance teacher and specialist in improvisation and many others.
We also offer workshops run by our LCATT team of teachers on different topics, often related to the theme we are working on in the training course, so that they can, for interest, be combined with a visit to the school.
