What Does a Movement Coach Do?

A MOVEMENT COACH works with performers, dancers and actors to enhance storytelling through physicality and dance. Different from a CHOREOGRAPHER or DIRECTOR, a MOVEMENT COACH builds upon the already established blocking, choreography and text. A MOVEMENT COACH may also teach classes based in techniques such as The Alexander Technique, The Suzuki Method, Viewpoint Techniques and many more.
