Benesh International: Benesh Movement Notation

Benesh International serves as the headquarters for Benesh Movement Notation (BMN). Previously known as the Benesh Institute, it has been part of the RAD since 1997.

We are dedicated to supporting the dance community by safeguarding choreographic copyrights, educating upcoming choreologists, and nurturing the BMN community.

Created by Rudolf and Joan Benesh and initially released in 1956, BMN is a notational system for documenting human movement, predominantly utilised in the documentation and reconstruction of dance pieces.
