Language of movement


"Dance as a composition of movement can be compared with spoken language. As words are built up of letters, so are movements built up of elements; as sentences are built up of words, so are dance phrases built up of movements. This language of movement, according to its content, stimulates activity of the mind in a similar but perhaps more complex manner than the spoken word.

In a free dance technique, that is a technique without a preconceived or dictated style, the whole range of the elements of movement is experienced and practised."*


In that sense it is worthwhile to visit the classes offered by CMAs/CLMAs:
