The author takes a new approach to teaching notation through movement exercises, thus enlarging the scope of the book to teachers of movement and choreography as well as the traditional dance notation students.
Updated and enlarged to reflect the most recent scholarship and through a series of exercises, this book guides students through:
movement, stillness, timing, shaping, accents
direction, flexion and extension
rotations, revolutions and turns
All of these movements are related to notation, so the student learns how to notate and describe the movements as they are performed.
