This remarkable hook guides the reader to directly experience what is truly fundamental in human movement and how movement development influences an individual’s perceptions and abilities to interact in the world. This experiential approach to movement fundamentals involves patterning connections in the body according to principles of efficient movement that encourage personal expression and full psychophysical involvement. This work was begun by Irmgard Bartenieff and is now known as Bartenieff Fundamentals. Peggy Hackney, one of Bartenieff’s close colleagues, illustrates Bartenieff’s work in great detail, and develops it further in her own work, in this pioneering hook, Making Connections.
