Our Record Speaks for Itself
Based in Denver, Colorado, Motus Humanus was incorporated as a non-profit professional organization (501-C6) in 1992.
Since its founding, Motus Humanus has provided continuing education for movement specialists by sponsoring eleven Advanced Seminars, drawing on nationally and internationally known faculty.
Six Roundtables on Professional Issues and many other special events such as focus groups, regional meetings, and book signings have provided multiple opportunities for collegial contact and networking. These events have been held in many locations across the United States, attracting presenters and participants from North America and around the world.
Motus Humanus sustains a varied publishing program of newsletters, monographs, and collaborative publications, along with services designed to encourage members to write and publish. In addition, Motus Humanus supports research through small grants. Funded projects have ranged in nature from clinical and theoretical research to explorations of new technologies and preservation of archival materials.
Support for improved professional practice has been provided at many membership events, where topics such as sales and marketing, career development, and protection of intellectual property have been discussed. As part of its mission to establish and maintain professional standards, Motus Humanus provides evaluation and certification of proficiency in Movement Pattern Analysis, an application of Laban-based movement study used in business.
