Inside Motion

An Ideokinetic Basis for Movement Education

Inside Motion is a comprehensive study of anatomical imagery based on the Todd-Clark body alignment work as developed by dancer and teacher John Rolland. Carefully organized as a learning manual, it comprises a complete description of the skeletal system. The basic goal of the work is the improvement of one's physical balance through a creative learning process that integrates mental and physical capacities. Students are guided to both think and feel their way through the body and, in the process, release layers of hidden kinesthetic information.

About the Author

JOHN ROLLAND (1950-1993) was a significant figure in the development of Release and Alignment Technique, as a teacher, dancer, and performer. He taught principles of alignment at the Eastman School of Music at the University of Rochester, N.Y., at Naropa Institute, and, for many years at the Theater school in Amsterdam, Holland, where he also taught dance.


"John Rolland has integrated the work of Mabel Todd, Barbara Clark, and Lulu Sweigard into a clearly articulated, visually explicit, userfriendly manual for anyone interested in exploring the balanced design of the body through the active use of the physical imagination."—Marsha McMann Paludan, performance faculty, University of North Carolina at Greensboro
