Who is Steven Hallmark?
I trained to be a professional actor at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art from 1970-1973. It was here that I was first introduced to the technique. The Alexander Technique is taught in many of the world's top performing arts academies as it is recognized to help performers cope with the unique strains of rehearsal and performance, while remaining their most free and expressive.
I trained to become an Alexander Teacher under Walter Carrington at the Constructive Teaching Centre in London from 1980-1983. This was the training course founded by F.M. Alexander himself which Walter Carrington continued after Alexander's death in 1955.
Throughout my over 35 years of teaching I have been fortunate to work with people from all walks of life and of all ages: office workers, performers, athletes, horse riders, children. This is work from which you never retire, rather you continue to grow and develop.
Given my background as a professional actor I have taught workshops applying the Alexander Technique to music, theatre and dance at Konsthögskolan Oslo (Oslo National Academy for the Arts) and for the Norwegian Actors Union (Norsk Skuespillerforbund) in Oslo, Norway; The Royal Scottish Conservatoire (formerly the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama) in Glasgow, Scotland; The Sibelius Academy in Helsinki, Finland and at Alexander Teacher Training Courses in England, Australia, Denmark and Belgium.
I was also head of Alexander Technique and Voice classes at Scenstudion in Stockholm from 1993-1999 (Artistic Director Matthew Allen).
I was Head of Training at the Stockholm Alexander Teacher Training Course from 2000-2013. I also teach master classes and refreshers for qualified teachers.
