5.2.2. Choreography Software: Labanwriter




Description

This article is from the Ballet and Modern Dance FAQ, by Tom Parsons twp@panix.com with numerous contributions by others.

5.2.2. Choreography Software: Labanwriter

For choreographic *notation*, there is a program for the Macintosh called
Labanwriter. According to Callum Downie, it is available from FTP sites
after a search by the likes of "archie." I understand there is also at
least one program for Benesh notation; contact Andrew Ward, Marketing
Director of the Royal Academy of Dancing and Benesh Institute Director on
award@rad.org.uk.

For further information, see `topics/labanotation-dialog-FAQ.txt' in the
Dancers' Archive. For information on dance notation in general, see also
