The Dart Procedures

Exploring developmental movement patterns to enhance and clarify  Alexander Technique principles

In this workshop, we will explore The Dart Procedures, a sequence of developmental movement patterns, developed by Joan

 and Alex Murray and based on the work of the renowned anatomist and anthropologist, Dr. Raymond Dart.

The Dart Procedure’s relevance to several Alexander's principles such as "antagonistic action, primary control,

 head forward and up, back lengthening and widening, and gentle pull to the elbows, will be

 experienced as you move from the fetal curve to full extension.

Through exploration, observation, and hands- on work, you will have the opportunity to sense the changes that

 occur at each stage of development. As a result, a deeper understanding of the oppositional forces

 inherent in rotation, flexion/extension, and the curves of the spine will be experienced.

During the second half of the workshop, you will learn how the Dart Procedures have been adapted to the chair,

 making it possible for all of your students to benefit from this type of learning.
