Encyclopedia of Benesh Movement Notation

Like any language, Benesh Movement Notation is continually evolving but it is essential that it remains universally understood by all who use it. The Encyclopedia of Benesh Movement Notation is a comprehensive reference resource of the signs and usage of the BMN system in the dance and clinical contexts.

Those with a Professional Benesh subscription are eligible to access the Encyclopedia as a benefit of their subscription.
