Does anyone know of any Universities that offer Labanotation that are near New England, or the East Coast. I am beginning to look at colleges and I don't want to go too far from home. :devil: Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Dear Ashlee,

I am a graduate of SUNY Brockport College in upstate NY. I was a Dance Major there... and there were at least two classes (when i was going there about 8 years ago) that were in Laban. I took them. Brockport has a respected dance degree... worth checking out, at least. I will say this, it's very 'modern' based though.

 

Good luck to you!!

 

ps... i wasn't registered till tonight, just so i could answer YOUR post! ;)

Take Care

The Dance Notation Bureau does offer correspondence courses in labanotation in case that your college does not offer it. I dont know this organisation but other institution such as RAD do also have dance notation courses by correspondence :) It is certainly worth studying it. In case you want to go for a Phd in Dance at some point you can replace 1 foreign language requirement with dance notation :D (for example at UC Riverside)

RAD's preferred notation, though, is Benesh, which is quite different from Labanotation.

I know but both institution provide dance notation courses by correspondence. I was referring to dance notation in general and not to a specific method. I think the Laban Centre does offer correspondence courses as well :-)

I believe that you're right. Actually, I prefer Benesh to Laban when it comes to ballet. It just seems better suited to the discipline!

I have done some elementary labanotation but I dont know much about Benesh. The RAD correspondence course is very expensive, and IMO overpriced.

In the US and Canada, it's actually not too bad*, and is often accompanied by lectures and tutorials at RAD training course meetings.

 

*That is, not out-of-line with other distance learning courses for everything from university-level English Literature to Calculus.
