The Radiant Dancer philosophy uses these principals in all classes, especially experimenting with these ideas in ballet classes.
Connectivity — The whole body is connected 2. Breath Support — Breath brings life and movement 3. Grounding — The earth provides a support, a ground for Being and moving. Developmental Progression — Basic body connections are patterned through a stage-specific developmental sequence. Intent — Intent organizes the neuromuscular system.
Inner-Outer — Movement is meaningful. Outer reflects inner. Inner reflects Outer. Function-Expression — Function and expression integrate to create meaning in movement. Stability-Mobility — Stabilizing and mobilizing elements interact continuously to produce effective movement.
Exertion-Recuperation — Exertion-Recuperation is a natural cycle which replenishes movement vitality. Phrasing — Movement happens in phrases. The preparation and initiation determine the entire course of the phrase. Personal Uniqueness — Patterning is an adventure. There is no one pathway for all persons to achieve full movement functioning. The "Bible" for Laban-Bartenieff!
Bartenieff Fundamentals and Developmental Movement Patterns

The upper and lower body each function as integrated units, with the upperbod rib-cage, shoulder-girdle, arms and hands works in contrast to the lowerbody pelvic girdle, legs and feeteg. The breath gradually expands outwards connecting the inner core to limbs all 6 limbs 2 hands, 2 feet, head, tail which reach outward away from center, and back inward toward center, like a starfish or octupus, squid, the core of the body is activated and connected through the midlims to the distal ends of limbs. Gordon and Breach especially pp. Awareness of arm-shoulder-scapula-latissimus connecting to lower body Awareness of full 3-dimensional gradated rotation in shoulder joints Integration of head-eyes with arm movement Narrowing and widening across sternum Action: Shopbop Designer Fashion Brands.
When moving, our coordination is affected by body connections, center of weight and the relationship to initiation and follow through of a given action. In developing the principles of Fundamentals, Bartenieff was concerned with support of the body to facilitate functional, expressive and efficient movement experiences. The Fundamentals are developmentally based. They mirror the stages of development of the brain and the motor skills that babies and toddlers progress through on their way to mastering mature movement patterns. The Fundamentals require the use of deep muscles, close to the core of the body, and the use of breath support to increase the power and flow of movement. They also require a clear spatial intent: an understanding of where movement initiates in the body and how it sequences through the body from one part to another Allison Dancers, actors, and musicians have found that practice of the Fundamentals brings greater clarity and expression to their performances.
The focus of this work is an alive interplay of functional and expressive movement, i. Focus BF focuses on the body aspect of movement. Its goal is to find ways of moving that are most effective in terms of energy and use the best possible connections within the body. Important aspects of BF are the sensing of body connections and allowing the movement to flow within those connections. Once the fundamental patterns are firmly anchored in the neurophysiological system, the connections cab grow from the inside out. This way refined body awareness can be developed, which also helps with everyday movement. Here is a link to an example of one of the basic 6 exercises by Martha Eddy The essence of movement is change.
