An introduction to the most basic elements of body language through the Delsarte System of Expression. Developed 150 years ago, Delsarte is a powerful force in our understanding of human movement and expression. Learn how your own movement patterns may be limiting the expressive use of your entire body.
Explore Delsarte's ninefold accords of the face and positions of the legs. See how harmonic opposition in the body creates dynamic poses for the camera.
