Course Description: This course will continue the process of providing knowledge and skill development regarding the use of the Laban Taxonomy of Movement Analysis in order to observe, document, describe, and assess human movement behavior through the lens of BODY and EFFORT categories (SPACE and SHAPE will be taught in LMA III). In addition, students will gain more information about Irmgard Bartenieff’s contributions to LMA and begin to create Laban/Bartenieff informed DMT warm-ups. Students will continue to explore how sociocultural content and psychological defenses manifest in body/movement and how sociocultural background and “protection” informs movement preferences. The written work and verbal discussions will be used, not only to gain knowledge and process experiences, but to practice communicating the material to other professionals outside of our field.
