Abstract

This article concerns the application of visual communication to the process involved in reading Benesh Movement Notation, an important system for writing dance scores. The goal of this project was to complement Benesh Movement Notation with other visual information so that a score could be read even by ballet students not familiar with this notation. In order to do this, the authors have created a system of ballerina figures (L-W Illustrations for Dance) and a system of ciphers for ballet positions (L-W Nomenclature Stave).
