Laban Institute for Movement Studies in New York

I know, I know, it's been a while since my last post. Things have been hectic down here to say the least. However some exciting things have happened including a trip to New York this past weekend.

Myself and my roommate went to the Big Apple for a workshop offered by the Laban Institute for Movement Studies (LIMS). Lesley University requires us to take an anatomy course as part of our degree. However given my background with anatomy I was able to take a weekend workshop instead and LIMS was recommended.

I have never been to New York before and let me tell you, it was something else! We gave ourselves Friday to explore the city. Lots of sight seeing was done through a hop on hop off tour bus. The class was all day Saturday and all day Sunday.

I can not speak highly enough about the teacher, Anastasi Siotas who was fabulous. He was extremely knowledgeable of the topic and tailored the content to our class. We only had four people in the class which made learning the material much easier. On the first day Anastasi asked us what we wanted to learn about and then scheduled the weekend to fit our needs. Although there was a lot of review, the way we discussed the material and were able to take it to a new level was great. The course is tailored for those with a movement background so instead of memorizing the muscles in the body we learned injury prevention and how they work for movers.

I would highly recommend checking out the school and if you are in the area and need to take an anatomy course, this is the place to do so!
