Warren Lamb

became a student of Rudolf Laban in 1946 and then his apprentice for development of the Laban Lawrence Personal Effort Assessment. After Laban's death in 1958 Lamb worked on the Effort /Shape concept and taught it to a number of students, including Irmgard Bartenieff and Judith Kestenberg.

He developed Action Profiling, later renamed Movement Pattern Analysis. His most well known book remains Posture and Gesture (1965). A recent book, "Beyond Dance: Laban's Legacy of Movement Analysis" by Eden Davies (London, Brechin Books, 2001) describes his life's work.

Currently Lamb is continuing his management consultancy and teaching activities (based on a wide range of Laban studies), is researching into Movement and Gender and travels frequently between U.S. and Europe.
