Hello! My name is Anna Delicia Trévien and I am currently the Head of Benesh Department at the RAD (formally know as The Benesh Institute) and the Senior Benesh Notator with The Royal Ballet. I have been a full time active choreologist for the last 17years.

Most of the time the people I meet have no idea what Benesh Notation is, how it can be used and what it takes to use it in a professional ballet company. So I decided to start this blog as a platform to give an insight into the world of Dance Notation and its many facets. The role of the Choreologist or Dance Notator (person who uses Benesh Movement Notation) plays a vital part in the daily life of a ballet company and hopefully this blog will help to share a better understanding of this. Eventually, I’d also like this blog to become a place where active Choreologists, retired Choreologists, Benesh Notation students and anyone interested in Benesh Movement Notation (BMN) could meet and exchange ideas.

  1. Having studied Benesh for 3 years at the RBS TTC course, but not used it again for years after that, as a dancer and then teacher, I am now finding it quicker to read than normal English! The RAD have had the wise foresight to print both options for their syllabi, and I surprise myself reading the Benesh “language” as it is much more precise. Well done Anna in your mission to explain the amazing Benesh system.

  2. As a veteran choreologist afraid that Benesh notation may be dying out, I think it’s a great idea to have another website devoted to choreology. The more the merrier. Our profession doesn’t get enough exposure. Thank you for the effort and the good quality of your website. Well done Anna.
