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. Although March intro courses were cancelled, we hope to continue with intro courses from May onward, as well as the summer modular program (June) and yearlong program (September).* Further, we have begun to coordinate the development of online coursework that will supplement our current yearlong program. And, given the success of our first online class March 26, we are currently working to program additional classes for an ongoing series.

Next up: a series of 3 BF Movement classes

Next up are three BF Movement classes taught by Alexandra Beller. These online classes will take place over the next three Thursdays at Noon EST (2, 9, 16 April). You can find out more information and register for one or all of the classes here: https://bit.ly/2WW1nEW If there is interest we may offer a recorded version in the same format as the first online class. For more information about the class you can reach us via Email

We want to hear from you! If there's an LBMS topic that you've been patiently or impatiently waiting to take a class on we would love to know. Is there a specific teacher you've always wanted to learn from? Do you have a class you would like to teach but don't want to worry about the admin or marketing? Let us know by completing our online class offering survey here: https://forms.gle/XcSFfeAZLnY6LC5n7

*If you have any questions or concerns regarding our course schedule moving forward please don’t hesitate to email education@labaninstitute.org.

As always, thank you for all that you do to bring LBMS into the world.
