Objectivity and Reliability
The Dance Notation Bureau (DNB) Library maintains the world's largest collection of original Labanotated dance scores. This catalog is not a complete inventory of the DNB’s holdings but does include information regarding the most frequently requested materials used by stagers and researchers worldwide. It includes scores in Labanotation but not scores in other forms of notation, e.g., Benesh.
Some of the scores listed in this catalog are incomplete but have been included because they may contain valuable information for dance educators and scholars. Scores that are older may not adhere to current standards of notation. Some scores are student notation projects, and some are not available to the public. These have all been included to show the diversity, uniqueness, and importance of the DNB’s collection.
