Cost $399 for 18-hour course.  Includes full-color training manual created by Carol-Lynne Moore, PhD, world renown scholar on the life and work of Rudolf Laban.

Body, Effort, Shape and Space are the 4 Pillars of Laban Movement Analysis, a method and language for describing, interpreting and documenting human movement in all of its forms. Gaining an understanding of this work opens a world of possibility in how you see yourself and the world, how you activate your full body with efficiency and aliveness, and can be transformative both personally and professionally.

This 18-hour course will introduce the participants to each of these 4 "doors of entry" into analyzing movement by experiencing the movement elements of each, practicing observation/analysis live and with recorded movement activities, discovering personal preferences in each of these areas, and finding the innate connections between these elements. This leads to being a more dynamic and efficient mover, improved self-understanding of personal movement preferences, sharpening and deepening movement analysis/observation skills and improved communication skills/interpersonal relationships.

 

This work can be - and is - applied internationally in a multitude of fields including psychotherapy, physical therapy, ballroom dance, athletics, animation and robotics, non-verbal communication, political analysis, education, modern dance, rock climbing, business and management consulting, conflict resolution, and theater and dance, and Pilates.

The workshop is open to anyone physically able and mentally interested in going deeper into the art and science of movement, and improving overall movement ability and understanding.

This 18-hour class serves as a prerequisite for Laban/Bartenieff Movement Analysis Certification programs.
