#### Transcript of Space

SPACE Personal and General Kinespheric space: it surrounds the body until the limits that our extremities can reach and travel with us across the scenic space. To dance with the whole body considering the kinespheric space it is necessary to move the center of the body. We can also move parts of the body within this space without involving the center. Kinespheric pieces for a dance composition puzzle are considered as movements in place (not travelling more than changing weight from one support to another). Kinesphere Positive and Negative Projection Body Shape Floor pattern is the pathway that the dancer takes when moving through space. It is also an indicator of where the dancer has been.

The floor pattern can be any combination of: straight in all directions, circular, wavy, zig zag or spiral.

The floor pattern in a composition will often be linked to the intent
Floor Patterns Laban defined that there are 27 seven main directions towards which we can move within the kinesphere:

1: Downward

2: Upward

3, 4, and 5: To the left: low level, middle level, high level.

6, 7, and 8: To the right: low level, middle level, high level.

9, 10, and 11: Backward: low level, middle level, high level.

12, 13, and 14: Forward: low level, middle level, high level.

15, 16, and 17: To the left diagonal backward: low level, middle level, high level.

18, 19, and 20: To the right diagonal backward: low level, middle level, high level.

21, 22, and 23: To the left diagonal forward: low level, middle level, high level.

24, 25, and 26: To the right diagonal forward: low level, middle level, high level.

27: To the center of the kinesphere (as the center of the body coincide with the center of the kinesphere, it can not move towards it; but parts of the body or its extremities can).
