Our score catalogue, compiled and edited by Tania Inman, provides an international listing of Benesh Movement Notation scores of professional dance works recorded 1955 - 1998.

Score catalogue

Of the 1,750 BMN dance scores in the repertoire, more than 250 are available for education, research, teaching dances from the repertoire and as a tool for the analysis of movement, rhythm, phrasing and the structure of dance works. 

The RAD’s Phillip Richardson Library houses a unique collection of over 500 Benesh scores including recordings of great choreographic works such as:

  • Ashton’s La Fille mal Gardée
  • Peter Wright’s The Nutcracker
  • MacMillan’s Romeo and Juliet, and
  • Hans Van Manen’s Five Tangos.

The collection also encompasses a number of scores which explore the use of BMN as a tool for anthropological and clinical research, such as Julia McGuiness’s Application of Benesh Movement Notation to Cerebral Palsy Research and Andrée Grau’s study of Ugandan dances.

Information about individual scores can be found online in the Library Catalogue. Select the Expert Search option and search in BMN scores.
