SignWriting List
September 3, 2011

Hello Alan!
Thank you for this question, and yes, this is fine place to ask about other aspects of Sutton Movement Writing. Of course, this List is specifically about SignWriting, which is one of five sections of the larger Movement Writing system, but there may be some List members interested in other aspects...

Here are some links on the web:

Sutton Movement Writing

Sutton SportsWriting

Sutton DanceWriting

Science Writing, or Gesture Analysis

One book that might give you more information is this old textbook:

DanceWriting for Modern & Jazz Dance

which details how to write full body movement - I started some free lessons on the web but never finished them:

Full Body Writing

I guess for now, that is the best information I can give you, but if you want the book above, you can order it above, or on

on Amazon

Keep us informed of your project -

Val ;-)
