Academic-Calendar Training Requirements
This is a full time training designed to be compatible with an academic calendar. Trainees study for one month in the summer in Santa Fe, one to two weeks in early January in Santa Fe, and then choose between a variety of short or long Training Events held throughout the year in Santa Fe, Portland, or at the German or Japan Alexander Alliance Training Programs to fulfill the annual minimum of 6 weeks of study.
The summer training includes one week of general Alexander training, followed by 2 weeks of training specifically designed for teaching performing artists (Performing Arts Immersion), followed by one week at the Alexander Alliance International Summer Retreat, allowing trainees to work with teachers, graduates, and fellow trainees from the German and Japan schools.
Trainees are expected to attend a minimum of 6 long events (or equivalent) each year. While trainees can design their own programs, annual attendance is recommended at:
- Performing Arts Summer Immersion (3 weeks in July)
- Alliance International Summer Retreat (1 week in August)
- Santa Fe Winter Immersion (1-2 weeks in January)
Trainees may attend any combination of short and long events, in Santa Fe, Portland, or wherever else (US/International) there is a CAS or Alexander Alliance event, in order to fulfill the remaining required events each year.
Students may study as much as they desire throughout the year for the same annual tuition, payable as determined by their individual payment plan.
