The Good Practice was delighted to host Dr Ann Hutchinson Guest as our guest speaker. Ann was a very popular guest, talking about her work over the past 80 years as a dancer, author, speaker and founder of Language of Dance charity in London.
Ann studied Labanotation with Sigurd Leeder at Dartington Hall in the South of England in the 1930's, and trained in modern dance and ballet. In New York she co-founded and directed the Dance Notation Bureau, danced on Broadway and taught at the Juilliard School. Her research into dance notation systems of the past provided revivals of ballets such as the Pas de Six from La Vivandiere and Nijinsky's L'Apres-midi d'un Faune. Ann will be very much missed but her name will be remembered by many and her work will continue through her charity Language of Dance.
