Laban movement analysis

A method of movement analysis developed in 1930s by an Austro-Hungarian dancer, Rudolph Laban, for describing and interpreting the elements that comprise a particular movement. According to Laban, there are 3 primary factors in a moving body: the body itself, the space surrounding it and the intention of the movement. Laban analysis is of use to those who perform bodywork and movement therapy.
