Laban Webinar Series

Inspirees Institute, Laban/Bartenieff Institute of Movement Studies (LIMS) and CAET are proud to present the Laban webinar series. The experts from different fields will share with the audience the fascinating stories and development of the history, applications and frontiers in the Laban field. The webinars will be organized as the online lecture every three weeks through the year of 2017-2018, with one hour each including the lecture and Q&A. The lectures are given in English with PPT and videos.

This webinar is primarily intended for researchers, educators and practitioners who have interest in Laban movement studies and would like to broaden their knowledge in Laban field.  It is also a platform for exchanges among professionals. It is not the replacement for systematic training for Laban theory. The participants should have some basic knowledge about Laban theory in order to follow the seminars.  Otherwise, we recommend you to follow some basic course of LMA/BF and study the materials below.
