Today's complex world requires versatile, creative approaches to education, healing, art and community. The practice and understanding of movement is vital in training people for active participation in a challenging, changing culture. An understanding of human communication requires an intelligence grounded in the body. Integrated Movement Studies is a faculty team of internationally recognized movement educators that offer Certificate Programs in Laban/Bartenieff Movement Studies, Introductory and Advanced Workshops, and a variety of customized professional services. Their work together over the past 30 years has contributed greatly to the evolution of the Laban/Bartenieff Movement Analysis material and helped to establish it as one of the most comprehensive systems of movement description and understanding available today.

Movement is omnipresent, and as such an understanding of how movement communicates has direct applications in many fields. Artists, therapists, non-verbal communication researchers, athletes, anthropologists, physical therapists and body workers are just some of the professionals who are finding value in the tools and approaches for movement understanding that the Laban / Bartenieff work provides.
