EUROLAB ConferenCE 2024

We are pleased to invite you to the EUROLAB Conference 2024 from November 15 - 17 under the title "LBMS and Pedagogy - Possibilities of a movement-based learning" in Bad Oldesloe (near Hamburg, Germany).


What possibilities does Laban/Bartenieff Movement Studies (LBMS) offer for body- and movement-oriented pedagogy? How are LBMS already being used in building and deepening emotional, cognitive and social competencies with the aim of establishing an extended bodily knowledge? What other possibilities are conceivable?

We would like to address these questions at the next EUROLAB conference in 2024 from the perspective of Laban/Bartenieff Movement Studies (LBMS).


To submit proposals for a presentation, please have a look on the following Call for Papers:

READER of the ConferenCE 2022

The EUROLAB Conference 2022 under the title "Tradition - Transition - Vision" took place from 25th to 27th November, 2022 in Loheland (near Fulda, Germany).


The conference aimed at bringing cutting edge applications both in theory and practice, of Laban/Bartenieff Movement Studies (Laban Movement Analysis, Bartenieff Fundamentals), in short LBMS.


We invited practitioners, scientists, artists and performers to send in their submissions both on historical developments in the field and impulses for future, as much as how LBMS serves in practical ways when applied to diverse fields, whether sports, education, dance, therapy or academic research. The result was an array of insightful paper presentations and workshops.


We are extremely grateful to the presenters who sent in their written contributions for the Conference Reader. The submitted papers in German and English are being published here in digital format this time to enable open accessibility.


We wish our readers inspiration with these insightful articles.
