Labanotation

£9.99

Product description

Initiated by the movement genius Rudolf Laban, and refined through 50 years of work by teachers here and abroad, Labanotation, the first wholly successful system for recording human movement, is now having the effect on ballet and other forms of the dance that the prefection of music notation in the Renaissance had on the development of music. Through Labanotation it is now possible to record accurately, for study and reconstruction, the great dance creations of the theatre, as well as such diverse activities as time/motion studies for industry, personnel assessment and physical therapy. So comprehensive that it can indicate even facial expressions, the system is also simple enough for a child to learn easily as an integral part of athletic or dance training. Here in this revised edition--the result of international conferences, standardizing terms and symbols--is a complete exposition of Labanotation.

The book is in clean, undamaged condition with only slight curling to the front cover and spine. The binding is tight.

Oxfam Bookshop Lymington

Lymington is on the South coast, bordering on the New Forest National Park which was created as a Royal Forest in 1079 by William the Conqueror, and first recorded as 'Nova Foresta' in the Doomsday Book in 1086. Our Oxfam Shop at 73, The High Street is in a lovely Georgian building, the tallest in Lymington. The elegant Georgian buildings lining the wide main street were built mostly for merchants in the local salt trade. The famous Saturday market brings the town to life with its variety of stalls. The area is renowned for outdoor pursuits, including camping, sailing, windsurfing, and surfing, as well as forest walks and horse riding.
