Message to Our LBMS Community

We take very seriously the health and safety of our students and faculty, and so LIMS joins other NYC based educational institutions in taking precautions by temporarily suspending our brick and mortar operations. This unfortunately means that our intro courses planned for the month of March in New York have been cancelled. Intro courses from May onward will continue as planned, as will our summer modular program beginning in June, and yearlong program beginning in September. Further, following the lead of other institutions of higher education, and the need to adapt and evolve, we have begun to coordinate the development of online coursework that will supplement our current yearlong program. If you have any questions or concerns regarding our course schedule moving forward please don’t hesitate to email education@labaninstitute.org.

Bartenieff Fundaments: the Basic 6 Online

For those who were unable to attend the online class on Thursday 26 March, we are providing a recorded version. The recording will be available for viewing for one week with registration. Fees are on a sliding scale of $10 and up to what ever you can afford to pay. A zoom link will be sent to registrants on Sunday, 29 March.

For more information about the class you can reach us via Email

As always, thank you for all that you do to bring LBMS into the world, and we look forward to bringing to you many exciting new programs in the coming months.

 Stay safe, stay grounded, and as a wise woman once said, remember to bend your knees and keep breathing.
