CMER Founder Wins Top Prize in Motus Humanus Essay Writing Contest

While Rudolf Laban developed rich framework for observing, analyzing, and recording human movement, he also advocated learning about moving by moving. In “Cultivating Body Knowledge,” CMER founder Judy Gantz describes the four stage pedagogical scheme she has created to help students deepen their understanding of movement. Her approach combines somatic learning about movement “from the inside” with objective and reflective approaches informed by Laban Movement Analysis. Her educational goal is to foster a corporeal way of knowing self and other, one that yields greater empathy and tolerance.

We are proud to announce this article won first place in a special series of prize-winning essays on the theme
"My Creative Application of Laban Theory" sponsored by Motus Humanus. The essay can be downloaded here.
