Bodymapping 101

Bodymapping 101 is an expression of the Alexander Technique offered in workshop or masterclass format. Choirs, bands and music studios are examples of groups that have experienced a Bodymapping 101 workshop.


Performance evolves out of the desire to be creative, to challenge oneself as an artist/performer and to share with one's community, whether local or global, something we are passionate about.


Marieke Schuurs has a unique style of teaching and performing, based on a combination of classical bel canto singing and the Alexander Technique.

Her method of teaching (The Cantare Method) is based on the understanding that activity is based on movement patterns initiated by thought.

Marieke is a cross-over artist, performing opera and art-songs as a mezzo-soprano and performing and writing vocal jazz.
