When students learn to play a musical instrument, they usually learn to read music notation. When students learn to move, why shouldn’t they learn to read Benesh Movement Notation (BMN)?  My goal is to create and host resources to help teachers introduce BMN to dance students in creative ways.

As I generate pdfs of my ideas and receive resources from other Benesh colleagues, I will post links from this page.

You are free to download and use these resources, but please honour copyright and give the appropriate credit to the person whose ideas are shared.

If you have creative teaching ideas and resources you would like to share with the Benesh Community, please contact me at
