Laban/Bartenieff Institute of Movement Studies CMA Training
Laban/Bartenieff Institute of Movement Studies
A CMA is a skilled movement professional trained and certified by the Laban/Bartenieff Institute of Movement Studies (LIMS®). A CMA has a highly refined understanding of the patterns of movement through the LMA lenses of Body, Effort, Shape and Space.
As a Movement Specialist, a CMA uses his/her comprehensive knowledge to identify movement patterns, convey the ‘what’ and ‘how’ of any human movement, and prepare people in numerous fields for active participation in the world.
To become a CMA a candidate must successfully complete a rigorous 520 Hour theoretical and experiential graduate-level Certification Program in Laban Movement Studies at the Laban/Bartenieff Institute of Movement Studies (LIMS®) headquartered in New York City, or at an off-site LIMS®-affiliated program location.
A CMA uses the Laban/Bartenieff System as a framework for structural, spatial, rhythmic, shape and dynamic components in human movement observation, synthesis, and analysis.
