Benesh International: Benesh Movement Notation
Benesh International is the home of Benesh Movement Notation (BMN). Formerly the Benesh Institute, since 1997 it has been incorporated within the RAD.
We support the dance profession by preserving choreographic copyright, training the next generation of choreologists, and supporting the Benesh Movement Notation community.
Devised by Rudolf and Joan Benesh, and first published in 1956, BMN is a written system for recording human movement. It is most widely used in the recording and restaging of dance works.
Our BMN4Ballet course is designed to give participants knowledge and understanding of the use of Benesh Movement Notation in the context of classical ballet.
