"As an actor and Movement for Actors teacher, I found this training extremely challenging yet profound in so many ways. I was given a foundation in analyzing my use of expressivity in various facets that gave me an inner perception of how I communicate and relate on a personal level and more importantly as a pedagogue. There is so much to absorb in this training, and as a a practitioner, performer, coach or facilitator you leave feeling confident that the entire faculty have given you the tools and guidance to proceed in your practice."

"My CMA training was a huge transformative journey into movement and life itself. It changed my whole perspective on my body as a moving whole, connected through mind and spirit. I loved learning and experiencing the moving body from the inner to the outer, while getting to know myself on a much deeper and intimate level. And the journey not only developed my skills as a dancer and choroegrapher, but it also developed and opened me as a person. Becoming more connected, grounded and reflective in all aspects of life."

"My Laban/ Bartenieff training opened the door to exploring movement in both a conscious and curious way that has expanded and developed my movement palette in a tremendous way. Having the unique opportunity to explore, embody, and analyze movement in an environment that fosters somatic learning has not only enriched and enlivened my work as a dance artist, teacher and choreographer but it has also provided me with the unique skills to work as a somatic practitioner in Laban Movement Analysis. The outstanding training and guidance I received under the direction of Janet Kaylo and the other experienced instructors was a life changing experience. I highly recommend this program to anyone who is wanting to learn about Laban Movement Analysis and a somatic approach to movement."

"When I started my CMA training in December 2006 I was in search of being questioned in “flesh and soul”. Through this brilliantly designed program I have found what I was looking for plus a new dimension of experience which has provoked changes in me that have permeated all aspects of my life. Through this still on-going journey, wisely guided by Janet Kaylo and her team of experienced faculty, I have found myself becoming a clearer writer about movement and its experience, a better coach for dancers and a “teacher” who is working towards a somatic approach. Each learning module brings new discoveries that are built on top of the previous one. I just can’t wait for the next Module!"
