DANC 3150 - Laban Movement Analysis


Introduces Laban Movement Analysis (LMA), a research methodology used to identify, describe, and notate movement, based on work of movement theorist Rudolph Laban (1879-1958). Course materials provide a framework for observation and description of movement through identifying its spatial, dynamic and qualitative features. Application of course materials includes use of LMA as a tool in performance coaching, teaching, choreography and as an instrument for recording movement through notation. Includes an introduction to Bartenieff Fundamentals, a movement training approach based on the principles of LMA.
