Originally from New Mexico, Scott trained as a dancer after earning a degree in mathematics. During his long career as a dancer and dance teacher, he studied many of the physical disciplines used by dancers to enhance their training. This led him to the work of Moshe Feldenkrais, which he began studying in 1982. He enrolled in London’s first professional Feldenkrais training program, from which he graduated in 1990.
Since 1997, Scott has devoted himself entirely to teaching Feldenkrais, working with individuals from all walks of life and with public groups from Finland to Ecuador. He also teaches in professional training programs, and has conducted two trainings in London. He is particularly interested in working with performing artists, from dancers to actors to musicians. As an amateur, he plays the viola da gamba.
