Laban – Space Harmony and Dance Movement Therapy
effort, kinaesphere, communication, planes of movement, space harmony, crystalline forms
This article is developed from an assignment completed for Laban/Bartenieff and Somatic Studies International in 2008 (see www.labancan.org). The assignment asked the question of ‘what is harmonic about Space Harmony’. The answer requires discussion of Laban’s philosophy and some contextual aspects that support the development of his theories. There is a focus on an article by Bodmer (1974), because it was a recommended reference provided during Jane’s LMA Certification Training. Practical applications related to Space Harmony – as used in Jane’s work, are presented.
