Our weekend intensive with Malcolm Balk was enormously beneficial to all our vocal students at Dalhousie. After seeing him work with students at various levels of their development, it it obvious that Balk is not merely offering tricks for short-term gain, but a fundamental and holistic approach to body awareness and alignment which can have a profound and lasting effect on any performing artist. As a voice educator, I was gratifying to witness my students being given tools with which they could begin to integrate various technical and expressive aspects of singing and acting.
“The benefits for me exceeded by far my initial expectations. In less than a year I’ve been able to run 10k when I was previously told by a few health professionals to give up running altogether. And in dance (tango)…well, I’ve achieved a level of expression that I thought was beyond my grasp. Let’s just say that you’ve indirectly made a few men very happy!
But my progress in running and dance are not my true benefits. I know realize that since taking Alexander lessons with you every day has become an adventure on self-discovery…an experience that I had long lost to childhood. It is truly bewildering to be able to accede to this new (or old) place of existence.
“The Alexander Technique is an excellent method that teaches one to move with much more awareness and much less effort, and Malcolm Balk is a very capable teacher of it. Whatever your problem, he can help”
“AT, for me, is instruction, guidance and inspiration. The benefits I have noticed are increased energy, relaxation and attention. I have also found increased performance and enjoyment of running and golf.”
