A Study of Teaching Materials based on Movement Experiences for understanding Kestenberg Movement Profile

﨑山, ゆかり

Kestenberg Movement Profile( KMP) is said to be a great tool for analyzing human movement from a psychodynamic and developmental point of view in dance/movement therapy. The author has finished all of the intensive courses for the level one certification and is now a qualified KMP Certified Analyst. This studyfocuses on its introductory course, which consists of theoretical and practical parts with numerous reflections and discussions. In particular, the structure of the 30-hour KMP introductory course has four parts. They are;theoretical understanding through lectures or reading references, observing various movement through movie clips, experiencing various movements of KMP elements, and verbalizing what and how participants feel via feedback. The circulation of the four parts is indispensable for understanding KMP. In addition, through these experiences, the importance of movement experiences was a clear focus. These movements are a core aspect of the circulation.For further study of KMP in Japan, a development of teaching materials for practical movement experiences is required. Beyond the gaps of English-Japanese translation of technical terms, we need various devices for inducing KMP movements. Especially, cards written in English and Japanese of technical terms of KMP,color cubes of each movement pattern or dice of each movement quality, and edited music for inspiring Tension Flow Rhythm and Tension Flow Attributes are indispensable. Pictures of various movements by recognizing Shape Flow patterns will be also useful. Comparing movements with match and mismatch, scripts for play will be supportive for understanding each difference. The materials will be utilized for Japanese KMP students for the next step.
