This course will discuss and define what Integrated Movement is, how it is different from Posture and Gesture, what it says, and how it can be used. Our approach will be to explore Integrated Movement as a unique aspect of your everyday self, your art, your dance, your work. We will analyze Integrated Movement as it is derived from the Action Profile System evolved from Rudolf Laban, Warren Lamb, and Pamela Ramsden. Irmgard Bartenieff approached whole body action as Postural movement. Here we will identify postural movement as different from Integrated Movement. We will explore gesture, posture, and Integrated Movement and their relevance to your personal style and other aspects of your life.
Class 1. Focus on the quality of Integrated Movement.
Class 2. Create with Integrated Movement.
Class 3. Support for applying Integrated Movement (IM) in areas of your choice.
January 23, 30, & February 6 11:00 am – 12:30 pm Eastern Time
