Sigurd Leeder was a remarkable man, an artist, dancer, choreographer and a
world-renowned teacher of dance. He had an exceptional talent in conveying
priceless gems of dance knowledge through his use of imagination and of
imagery. His form of dance training, based on Rudolf Laban’s theories, was
rich and varied. Observing what particular aspect of dance technique needed
work, he would create a Study around that physical, spatial, dynamic or
rhythmical need. This book presents ten such studies in contrasting moods
and sensitivities.
In the late 1930s Ann Hutchinson, a diligent student at the Jooss-Leeder
Dance School at Dartington Hall in Devon, spent time working on the
dance notation scores of the classroom training studies she experienced.
These notations became a part of the preservation of that style of dance
training and also the foundation of her lifetime involvement in the subject of
movement notation and its enrichment for dance education. Realizing how
little this form of training is now available, she determined to provide a start
by publishing a selection of these studies from the Leeder heritage for the
benefit of future dance students. Married to ballet historian Ivor Guest, she
is aware of the importance of augmenting the dance heritage for the dance
