Lynne Compton

In 1989 a friend took Lynne to an Alexander Technique demonstration that changed the course of her professional life forever. Fascinated by the power of the method and its ability to reveal the performer's natural presence, Lynne was convinced this was the next step for her career. In 1996 she became a certified teaching member of Alexander Technique International. She is now a locally acclaimed Alexander instructor. Lynne has taught at the Seattle Opera (YAP), The University of Washington, Cornish College of the Arts, and Freehold Acting Studio.
