Description: The Simpson Board consists of colour-coded diagrams, words and Motif symbols laid out on an A3 laminated sheet. The information on the Board is dance-specific, consisting of body and movement concepts and illustrations. As a tool, the Board has proven to be extremely useful in the choreographic process in giving voice to those who cannot speak, developing precision, communication skills and self-expression, and fostering creativity. In mainstream dance education, it is invaluable for anyone teaching choreography or notation.
