Alexander Technique Instructor


Holly Cinnamon is an actor, writer, singer, yoga and Alexander Technique teacher currently living in New York, New York. She is thrilled to be back home in Edmonton teaching in the Opera Nuova program this year! ​

Last summer,​ ​Holly performed her Off-Broadway debut in a new play entitled Dear Jane and most recently was filming a Netflix show which will be released later in the year. Before that, she was seen as Anne Shirley in Anne and Gilbert the Musical in PEI. As a new Alexander Teacher, Holly was thrilled at the opportunity to assistant teach actors at the Barrow Group Theatre in NYC with Belinda Mello. She also teaches private lessons and group lessons for performers at the Balance Arts Centre in Manhattan. ​

She was honoured to attend the Alexander Technique International Conference in Seattle as a ​c​onference ​a​ssistant, and now serves on the Professional Development Committee of that organization. She recently had an article published in the ExChange, ATI's professional journal​, on Alexander Technique and "The Disappearance of the Third Dimension", examining how ​our relationships to screens are affecting our vision and how we experience our bodies. She looks forward to attending the Alexander Technique Congress in Chicago later this summer, where she will be working as an assistant again. 

​Thank you to Kim Mattice and Marie Nychka​ for their faith in my work and for bringing me back home! I am very excited to meet and work with you all!
