Movement Analysis in Dance Therapy: Semantics of Movement Qualities, Rhythm and Shape According to Laban and Kestenberg This paper outlines how approaches from dance therapy can contribute to our understanding of movement. Two major systems of movement analysis (notation and observation) are introduced focusing on movement qualities, for which they provide basic categories and a basic vocabulary. It is argued that these approaches can contribute to a fuller understanding of movement and its semantics, particularly in its qualitative and dynamic aspects. Analýza pohybu v taneční terapii: sémantika kvalit pohybu, rytmu a tvaru podle Labana a Kestenbergové Článek popisuje, jak přístupy taneční terapie mohou přispět našemu porozumění pohybu. Jsou představeny dva základní systémy pohybové analýzy (notace a pohled), které se zaměřují na pohybové kvality, pro které poskytují základní kategorie a základní slovní zásobu. Je ukázáno, že tyto přístupy mohou přispět lepšímu porozumění pohybu a jeho sémantice, zvláště v jeho kvalitativních a dynamických aspektech.
