Meet the Teacher: Alicia Frost
Where did you train / study as a dancer / teacher?
I graduated from The School of Toronto Dance Theatre, and I also trained at The Martha Graham School. I did my teacher training at the Limón Institute and Royal Academy of Dance.
Describe your most inspirational teacher
I am very lucky to have had so many inspiring teachers both from Canada and The States that were hugely influential for me and to whom I credit my training in both Graham and Limón techniques. Two spring to mind!
Patricia Minor (Toronto) for her exceptional knowledge about the mechanics of the dancer’s body. Her crystal clear imagery is still what I draw upon today. And Risa Steinberg (New York) who taught me how to bounce, how to curve and how to sing with my body when I fall and suspend.
How would you describe your teaching style in three words? Energetic! Musical and fun
How would you describe your class and what can people expect from a class with you?
My class is about developing awareness of your body through movement. It incorporates technical elements of spiral, flexion and extension of the spine, exercises developing strength and opportunities to explore shifts of weight through ‘fall and suspend’ combined with musical phrasing of challenging rhythms and dynamic expression.
What is your favourite Rambert work?
