Carol-Lynne Moore


Adjunct Faculty


Carol-Lynne Moore, PhD, has been involved in the field of Laban Movement Analysis (LMA) as a writer, lecturer, and consultant for over 30 years.  Her familiarity with the "oral tradition" of LMA stems from working closely with the late Irmgard Bartenieff and Warren Lamb, both protégés of Rudolf Laban. Her unique knowledge of the "literary tradition" arises from her doctoral and post-doctoral examinations of materials in the Rudolf Laban Archive, a vast repository of unpublished writings and drawings from the last 20 years of Laban's career.  These studies, conducted at the University of Surrey and partially funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Board (U.K.), are recounted in her most recent book, The Harmonic Structure of Movement, Music, and Dance According to Rudolf Laban.

Dr. Moore's interest in Laban's work incorporates practical, theoretical, empirical, philosophical, and historical perspectives.  She has taught in professional Laban training programs in New York, Los Angeles, Seattle, Salt Lake City, Rotterdam, and Berlin.  Recently, she has taken active part in designing and teaching in the MA Program in Somatic Studies and Labananalysis at the University of Surrey in England and also the Graduate Certificate Program in Laban Movement Analysis at Columbia College in Chicago.  She is the author of Executives in Action, Beyond Words, and  Movement and Making Decisions.  Dr. Moore is a founding board member of the Laban/Bartenieff Institute of Movement Studies in New York and Motus Humanus, a professional organization for movement specialists based in Denver, CO.
