LSSI Certificate Programs in Movement Analysis and Somatic Practice

LSSI’s Modular Program in Movement Analysis and Somatic Practice™ provides in-depth study and practice utilizing Laban Movement Analysis and Bartenieff Fundamentals? (LMA/BF) as a framework for movement analysis and somatic practice; while deepening perception of movement experience, movement vocabulary and understanding of non-verbal communication. Through the series of Five Modules, you will develop refined movement skills in observation and practice within each of the categories of Body/Effort/Shape/Space, as well as gain the ability to use a codified system of movement analysis when working with others, analyzing your own work, staging/choreographing, communicating non-verbally, writing about or researching movement. You will develop greater anatomical efficiency and technical mastery through movement re-patterning, learn to work with others as a Somatic movement therapist/educator, while significantly expanding the range of your individual expressivity and understanding of somatic process. Through this course of training and study, you will uncover your individual perceptual biases in communicating and understanding movement as art and as intersubjective, lived experience – in teaching, performance, clinical and somatic practice, and in everyday life.

Full program beginning in 2015 – Location to be announced.
