"'Irmgard Bartenieff has a profound knowledge of the human body and how it moves. I am delighted that this will now be made available to many more people.'." -- George Balanchine of Director, New York City Ballet "'Irmgard Bartenieff's pioneering work in the multiple applications of Labananalysis has had a transforming influence on many areas of movement training. Her careful and detailed development of the spatial principles into active corrective work has illuminated and altered the training of people as varied as dancers, choreographers, physical therapists, movement and dance therapists, and psychotherapists. Anthropologists and non-verbal communication researchers have found their world view necessarily altered by her fundamental innovations. The field of body/mind work will need to adapt to include her clear working through of basic principles.'." -- Kayla Kazahn Zalk of President, American Dance Guild

"Beyond Words presents movement observation and analysis techniques to examine every day human interactions, allowing performers to understand them in a new light. Carol-Lynne Moore and Kaoru Yamamoto build on the techniques they expertly displayed in the first edition of the book, maintaining a focus on the process of movement as opposed to discussions of static body language. The authors combine textual discussion with a new set of website-hosted video instructions to help readers develop an in-depth understanding of nonverbal communication. This new second edition is fully revised with a new introduction, and is illustrated throughout. It presents a fascinating insight into this vital field of study and will be an invaluable resource for scholars and practitioners in many areas of performance analysis, choreography and actor training"--

Training in somatic techniques—holistic body-centered movement that promotes awareness and well-being—provides an effective means of improving dance students’ efficiency and ease of movement. However, dance educators do not always have the resources to incorporate this knowledge into their classes. This volume explains the importance of somatics, introduces fundamental somatic principles that are central to the dance technique class, and offers tips on incorporating these principles into a dance curriculum. The authors demystify somatic thinking by explaining the processes in terms of current scientific research. By presenting both a philosophical approach to teaching as well as practical instruction tools, this work provides a valuable guide to somatics for dance teachers of any style or level. Instructors considering this book for use in a course may request an examination copy here.

Movement connects us all. We are all moving, all of the time. The moving body is the foundation of human activity. In a world where technological advancement allows for instant global connections, we are becoming increasingly disembodied. This gives rise to "dis-ease" in our physical, emotional and intellectual selves. This book promotes increased awareness of the power and potential of human movement. It takes into account personal uniqueness, as well as the universal aspects of what it means to be human. This is a book for every body. In order to experience life to it's fullest, it is important to keep in touch with our moving selves. It is not a "how-to" book. We are not advocating a specific movement technique or practice. It is about re-discovering that you are a mover and that movement is not just an activity. Our movement is the expression of ourselves in the world. Karen A. Studd is master teacher for the Laban/Bartenieff Institute of Movement Studies, teaching internationally in training programs in movement analysis. She is also a professor at George Mason University. A teacher of movement analysis, somatics and dance, her interest is in promoting awareness of human movement as a fundamental body of knowledge. She is frequently sought as a "body language expert" in observation of personal style through the non-verbal communication of political pundits. Laura L. Cox is a teacher of Laban/Bartenieff Movement Studies, dance, kinesiology and somatics. She has taught internationally and served on the faculties of several universities, including New York University and the University of Nebraska. A Certified Movement Analyst (CMA) and Registered Somatic Movement Educator and Therapist (RSME, RSMT), she has a private practice in movement education and specializes in repatterning the movement of individuals suffering from chronic pain or injury.
