In Three Sentences… Labanotation

Labanotation is a way of scoring dance on a page and reading it back, just like you would music.

It records how the joints of your body relate to each other, and how they’re moving.

It can’t write everything, but if you’re invested in the culture of the dance it can write a hell of a lot – and it’s much better than video.
