Laura Bond, MFA, is a Professor at UNC-Asheville where she teaches acting and directs the university’s Arts & Ideas program.
Laura developed TEAM for Actors in her acting classes at UNC, Asheville since her appointment in 1998. Many of the new theories presented in the TEAM emerged out of her work as an Alba Emoting instructor and her experiences co-teaching with Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement Teachers.
Laura studied and co-taught with Susana Bloch, the creator of the Alba Emoting technique, in the USA and in Chile where Susana Bloch resides. One of few CL5 Alba Emoting teachers in the USA, Laura is recognized nationally and internationally for her workshops and her development of Alba Emoting teaching methods. Working closely with Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement instructors, she has developed new methods for teaching the emotional effector patterns to non-performers, as well as performers, with greater somatic clarity and sensitivity to the individual.
