Toward Center: The Art of Being for Musicians, Actors, Dancers, and Teachers by James Jordan, Nova Thomas, James Conlon



Practical ideas and an introduction to the philosophy of being “centered” in life are at the core of this helpful exploration. Detailing how the power of Center can ground performance, teaching, and learning and offering first-hand examples of how the philosophy is used to prepare for life on the stage, this account reveals the importance of Centering in day-to-day living. Featuring a succinct definition of Center and breathing exercises to help access this unique sense of focus, this tool is a beautifully illustrated and invaluable resource for performers, actors, conductors, and teachers alike.
