New Membership Levels and Benefits coming soon!

Thank you to everyone who provided such invaluable feedback through our membership survey that went out last month. We loved reading through your comments, ideas, and suggestions, and learned a great deal about our community, its grievances, needs, and aspirations. Based on much of the feedback that we received, and our new organizational vision we are currently working to restructure our membership and to build infrastructure to support the development and implementation of new member benefits. Some of these include monthly video content such as interviews, webinars, and workshops with key figures in the Laban community, made available in the member’s forum on our website, and something we are most excited for, a digital platform that supports dynamic communication, community building, and collaboration. Over the next few months we will slowly begin to implement many of these benefits. If you are currently a member visit the members forum on our website to check out the first of our new video content, an interview with Ann Hutchinson Guest, founder of the Language of Dance Centre and Co-founder of the Dance Notation Bureau. The trailer for this interview is available for all to view on the homepage of our website. See below for a list of the new proposed benefits. If you aren’t currently a member, join now to take advantage of our current member levels and rates. Once we implement all of the proposed benefits, member levels and rates will change.
