Movers and Shakers - Instigators of Global Water Dances

Global Water Dances began with a small group of students of non-verbal communications all trained in Laban Movement Analysis, with decades of experience in producing Movement Choirs, events that use community dance to create social cohesion. Participation in planning local events or Global Water Dances is open to anyone who loves to move.

Global Water Dances was the brainchild of a group of Laban Movement Analysts who attended a conference on Dance And the Environment in July 2008 at Schumacher College in England. This college is connected to the Dartington Estate, which is rich in modern dance history and Laban's life. This original conference group makes up the Founding Members, and includes Karen Bradley, Richard Bell, John Chanik, Gretchen Dunn, Martha Eddy, Ellen Goldman, Marylee Hardenbergh, Antja Kennedy, Tara Stepenburg, Simone Hoever,and Daniela Schlemm.

The artistic director for this global project is Marylee Hardenbergh.
