What Are Principles of Bartenieff Fundamentals? book
As you read through these principles you probably noticed that they are interrelated and that the point of delineation of one from another may seem fuzzy. This is inherent in dealing with fundamental truths. I encourage you to rephrase and list them in your own way. I do it frequently. Now, however, let’s look at each one of the fundamental truths and see in what way these principles might have implications for teaching movement or repatterning. As you read this next section, I suggest that you envision yourself moving or teaching movement. Let yourself sense how that moving or teaching might be different if you were intending to embody each of these principles one at a time. Pick a specific type of movement which you can return to with each principle. For instance, if you choose tennis, how would your tennis serve be different if you were utilizing Breath Support; or confirming your relationship to the earth through Grounding?
