Experience, observe, understand and create movement…
A further education for all those working with movement
The Certificate Program in Laban/Bartenieff Movement Studies (LBMS) – Basic Level runs in Berlin over 2 years in an intensive format in English starting in July 2019 and in a weekend format in German in Sept. 2020. It is directed by Antja Kennedy and concludes with a certificate in Laban/Bartenieff Movement Studies – Basic Level.
The Basic Level includes the practical and theoretical study of
- the Bartenieff Fundamentals Bodywork (basic six sequences, body connectivity, and whole- body organizational patterns) – focus of the 1st year
- the Laban Movement Studies (Space Harmony, Effort and Shape theory) – focus of the 2nd year
- movement observation and notation (including methods of observation, observation exercises, and motif writing)
- as well as seminars on the history and application of LBMS.
The goal of the program is to acquire the foundations of a comprehensive movement study and a holistic understanding of movement. Students of the Basic Level enhance their creative skills and discover new growth opportunities by recognizing movement patterns and expanding them through LBMS. They will get more clarity, coordination and expression in their movement and will improve their movement observation.
Pre-requisites include: A Bachelors degree, vocational training or a similar qualification, as well as proof of participation in introductory courses in Laban Movement Studies and Bartenieff Fundamentals. A wide range of experience in various types of movement, dance styles or sports is beneficial.

With the Basic Level Certificate the acquired knowledge can be applied in a professional field.
