Antioch University New England's DMT and Counseling Program and the New England Chapter of the ADTA are co-hosting an evening to honor Antioch's DMT Program founder, Penny Lewis. The Penny Lewis film night will be held at Antioch on Sept. 27th, Saturday between 6-9 pm. There will be a reception in the community room at Antioch followed by the new film by Judith Rubin, "To Move is to Be Alive: Penny Lewis Dance Therapy Pioneer." http://www.expressivemedia.org/f14.html Here is additional information about the film:
This film is primarily about the professional life and contributions of Penny Parker Lewis, an early dance therapy author and pioneer. One of the highlights is a series of excerpts from "To Move is to Be Alive," created and narrated by her in 1973. This film also contains previously unseen footage from an individual movement therapy session, along with Dr. Lewis' comments on the interaction between herself and the young woman. In addition, there are clips from her last workshop at a conference of the New England Chapter of the American Dance Therapy Association. Reflections by those with whom Dr. Lewis worked (Susan Loman, Lore Caldwell, Mark Sossin, David Read Johnson, Jenny Baxley Lee, Eleanor Irwin and Judith Rubin) further clarify her contributions to dance/movement therapy, as well as to the field of drama therapy. Penny Lewis coped with her fatal illness and untimely death in a creative fashion, one in which her devotion to educating others played a significant role. The film ends with this final courageous chapter in a highly productive life. Penny Lewis was the founder of Antioch University New England's Dance/Movement Therapy Program in 1976 and she taught dance/movement therapy courses for many years at Lesley University.
This event will be held at Antioch in the Community Room at 40 Avon St., Keene, NH.
LABAN MOVEMENT ANALYSIS (LMA)
92 Y, NYC
Nancy Allison, BFA, CMA
This course is designed to introduce students to the basic concepts, vocabulary and techniques of movement analysis developed by Rudolph Laban and his disciples.
Laban Movement Analysis (LMA) is a way of experiencing, observing, and describing movement that includes analyzing the movement’s component parts and synthesizing those parts into a contextually meaningful event. By interweaving subjective and objective modes of perception to arrive at its working vocabulary LMA allows one to discover significant connections between the outer form of movement and the inner intention of the mover. These connections provide insights into personal movement style, and increase awareness of what and how movement communicates. This course is approved by the ADTA for Alternate Route requirements for the R-DMT. It satisfies LMA Intro Requirements for LIMs certification.
Fri, Sept 12 - Jan 16, 1-4 pm, 15 Sessions, 45 hours
$825 until Sept 5 / $850 after.
