Betsy Polatin, an internationally recognized teacher, has a BA in Dance, and an MFA in Theater Education, and is currently a Master Lecturer at Boston University’s College of Fine Arts, teaching the Alexander Technique. Her background includes forty years of movement education and performance, as well as training in music, dance, yoga, meditation, and the healing arts. Some teaching experience includes; Berklee College of Music, Muscular Therapy Institute, New England Conservatory, Tanglewood Music Festival, and Opera Institute of Boston. She has taught Master Classes for Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, Saint Francis Friary, Children’s Hospital, Boston Ballet, Sports Medicine Clinics, Cambridge Choir of England, Northeastern Society for Group Psychotherapy, and American Red Cross, in the United States, Europe, Australia, India, Japan, and Korea. She currently assists Dr. Peter Levine in his advanced Somatic Experiencing master classes.

Betsy has just returned from an around the world tour, where she has presented her unique combination of work, The Actor’s Secret, which blends the Alexander Technique with Carl Stough’s Breathing Coordination principles and Peter Levine’s Somatic Experiencing theory of trauma. This work helps people recognize that they have habitual patterns that are charged with unconscious commitment, and excess tension. Once these patterns are brought to awareness, depth of change can happen on many levels, as the life force resumes. Her work is greatly influenced by the teachings of spiritual, and meditation, masters.

Betsy’s book, The Actor’s Secret, featured on ABC TV and Fox news, has received rave reviews, and is now a recommended textbook in many performing arts schools. As a breathing and movement specialist, she has had numerous articles published in the Huf ngton Post. She maintains a private practice in Brookline, MA and the Berkshires.
