Laban/Bartenieff and Somatic Studies Canada (LSSC), under the direction of Janet Kaylo MA, CMA, RSMT, SrDMT, MPA, presents Certificate Programs in Laban/Bartenieff Movement Analysis in Vancouver, BC.


About LSSC

Under the umbrella of Laban/Bartenieff and Somatic Studies International (LSSI), LSSC presents Modular Certificate Programs in Laban Movement Analysis and BodyMind Practice(TM) in Vancouver and Toronto. Completion of the full program includes the Certification in Laban Studies (CMA) award conferred in affiliation with LIMS®. Our first Vancouver program begins with Module One, in December, 2008. The LIMS® conferred CMA and the Certificate in Movement Analysis and BodyMind Practice are awarded with successful completion of all five Modules.

As the umbrella organisation for Laban/Bartenieff and Somatic Studies Canada, LSSI is committed to providing in-depth, experiential movement study programs within the framework of Laban/Bartenieff Movement Analysis (LMA) and its application as a somatic, bodymind practice. Modular Certificate programs are designed to refine participants’ abilities to understand and explore movement as the basis of lived experience-in life as well as in art.

The LSSC Vancouver Modular Program

The Vancouver Certificate program takes place within a vibrant and long-standing professional LMA community. Guest and other faculty will be comprised primarily of members of the Vancouver area Laban/Bartenieff community.

The Modular Program includes five, two-week intensive session blocks, in December, June, and August months. Modules One through Three can be taken as self-contained units, while Modules Four and Five require completion of all previous modules.

All Modules require pre-requisites of Introduction to Anatomy/Kinesiology, or Experiential Anatomy; Introduction to Laban Movement Analysis, and Introduction to Bartenieff Fundamentals (BF). Pre-requisite, introductory courses are offered regularly in British Columbia, and other parts of Canada. For dates and locations, see Introductory Programs at www.labancan.org.

While Modules are structured thematically as categories of Body, Effort, Shape, Space (BESS) and a Final Application Project, all the modules include integration into the full framework of LMA. The title of the Module represents the area through which we enter LMA/BF, and where our in-depth explorations are focused. Each category of BESS reveals a picture of the whole of our LMA/BF system, and experientially draws out the interconnections between each of the categories.
