Dana Calvey

A portrait of Dana Calvey, an Alexander Technique teacher in her 30s. She hasshoulder length blonde hair, wears a purpley blue tank top blouse, and smiles at the camera. The portrait is framed from the chest up.

Dana has been in this work for 12 years, teaching and presenting both nationally and internationally, in varied settings.  Dana's greatest value is facilitating student's experiences to bravely uncover deep layers of themselves. She uses the Alexander Technique principles to shine a light on students' endless possibility within; to unleash their creativity, and open into more humanity and deepen their personhood.

Teaching highlights include currently working in three teacher training programs (Minneapolis, Philadelphia, and NYC) masterclasses (Yale School of Sacred Music, NJ Shakespeare, Stony Brook University,) and retreats (Florida, Ohio, and California). In NYC, she's delighted to be teaching at The Barrow Group, The American Academy of Dramatic Arts, as well as her own private practice.  She teaches at Interlochen School for the Arts Summer Program in Interlochen, Michigan. Her goal is not only to serve performers through the work but to facilitate the proliferation of Alexander's discovery in her lifetime.  Dana is a member of both ATI and AmSat.
