Benesh for Ballet
Written by Rhonda Ryman-Kane and Robyn Hughes Ryman
Basic ballet positions in word definitions, dance form images and Benesh Movement Notation
‘We all know what a music score looks like. Have you ever wondered what a dance score looks like, or if they even exist? There are in fact several dance notation systems and one of the most popular for ballet is Benesh Movement Notation (BMN). Like most languages, it is easier to read than to write. In fact, reading basic ballet positions is simple.
This book introduces you to the fundamental concepts of BMN to help you read basic ballet positions from the three “schools” of ballet: English, Italian, and Russian. The basic poses are described in words, images, and notated examples. Using interactive iBook features, readers can add Highlights, take Notes, make Study cards, complete Reviews to learn BMN fundamentals while brushing up on ballet vocabulary.’
