The Meaning is in the Movement
Developed by Rudolf Laban, Laban Movement Analysis (LMA) is a framework of principles that examine the process of moving and enhances our ability to observe, describe what we see, and understand its meaning. One aim of LMA is to awaken sensory awareness in order to help us more clearly understand our thoughts, feelings and intuitions expressed in movement. In so doing we bring the body experience to words.
In this flexible system there are four primary categories, they are Body, Effort, Space, and Shape (BESS). With a language for describing movement both quantitatively and qualitatively, we can better bridge perception and assessment and broaden our worldview. This somatic approach to observation and understanding can be utilized in such diverse fields as the performing arts, yoga, fitness and athletics, health and rehabilitation, social sciences and non verbal communication.
