workshop: tue 11 aug | details
Glenn B. Swift is a certified Alexander Technique practitioner.
Glenn's first 'real' encounter with the Alexander Technique was in his foundation year of the performance course at WAAPA, where it had a profound impact on his physical and emotional presence. Lead by fate and instinct, he applied for and was granted three years of funding by ArtsWA to undertake teacher training. Glenn qualified to teach Alexander Technique at the Sydney course directed by Christine Ackers, Andrea Beasley and Vivien Mackie (1987). Being clever and keen, he undertook postgraduate terms at the Constructive Teaching Centre in London in 1989 and 1991.
He taught for many years at the West Australian Academy of Performing Arts, teaching in the acting, music theatre, jazz and classical courses. He now combines his private practice in Perth with annual forays into Europe (sometimes South America!) as guest teacher at many teacher training schools.
In Western Australia, Glenn teaches actors, singers, musicians, school teachers, horse riders and public speakers from every profession. He combines his private practice in Fremantle with a busy circuit of community libraries, where he is in high demand as a professional storyteller.
