This video presents Dick McCaw's experience of learning and performing Rudolf Laban's Dimensional Scale. Making reference to the teaching of three celebrated Laban experts (Geraldine Stephenson, Warren Lamb and Walli Meier), the video establishes different ways of engaging with one of Laban's most simple exercises.
