DANC 120 - Introduction to Laban Movement Analysis

(2,2) 3 Credits

The focus of this course is to learn the basic theories and principles of human movement developed by Rudolf Laban that includes historical background, the theoretical frameworks of Body, Shape, Effort, and Space, and
Labanotation (a written language for describing movement). This course will also include an introduction to the work of Irmgard Bartenieff that focuses on psychophysical connectivity to facilitate efficiency and expressivity in movement. Material will be introduced through observation, improvisation, exploration, composition, readings, group discussions, and movement assignments as both a methodology for observing/describing the structural and qualitative aspects of human movement and a means of identifying personal movement preferences in order to introduce a greater range of functional and expressive movement. Students will be required to provide appropriate dance attire. Offered in the fall semester.
