Postgraduate Diploma in Benesh Movement Notation (PGDBMN)

PGDBMN is the highest taught award in Benesh Movement Notation (BMN), designed as a postgraduate diploma, which prepares students to become Chartered Benesh Choreologists (CBChor). It equips students with the necessary skills to use BMN for the recording and reconstruction of movement to a professional level, and will prepare them for employment as Benesh Choreologists in a repertory dance company.

PGDBMN is a flexible programme, designed to respond to students’ individual needs and circumstances. A combination of distance learning and work placement is undertaken over one year of full-time study or two years of part-time study. The programme may start at any time during the year, at the discretion of the Head of Benesh International.

The programme is only open to those with a comprehensive knowledge of BMN, and normally required potential students to have completed the Professional Award in Benesh Movement Notation (part 2) achieving an overall Distinction mark.
