London Contemporary Dance School's touch as a teaching tool

With a focus on Alexander Technique


Sorry, you missed this event, SIGN UP to get information on our forthcoming shows

Tue 12 December, 1 - 4pm

Alexander Technique has a lot more to offer to the dancer than how to stand up straight. Join Susanne Lahusen to explore intention, initiation of movement, and look at how your habits might shape you, both in movement and thought. Touch will be the medium for this session, most of the work will be experiential.


Teacher's biography

Susanne Lahusen’s interest in somatics started when she helped to set up a collection on the early 20th century Central European Dance, and started to explore the roots that led to the various somatic practices of today. She has a BEd in Movement Studies and Sports Science, an MA in Dance, and certification in Yoga, Pilates, Gyrotonic, and the Alexander Technique. She currently teaches somatics at London Contemporary Dance School, trains yoga teachers for Yogacampus, she runs experiential anatomy and yoga sequencing courses, and also works as a private movement practitioner. Whilst respecting the unique characteristics of the various disciplines which she has studied, Susanne’s approach to teaching has evolved from an awareness of the elements that are fundamental to all movement.
