This article recounts the Rudolf Laban concept of space harmony, also known as choreutics, as imparted to Megan Reisel, a protégé of the renowned Laban educator and choreographer, Angiola Sartorio, during the latter’s final years from 1991 to 1995. Sartorio presented a fundamental aspect of dancer training, which offers a unique perspective on the interaction between the dancer and space. In this paradigm, space is perceived as an invisible matrix of interconnected lines that emanate from the body’s centre and extend into an intuitive sense of infinite space. By embracing this approach, dancers gain an enriching opportunity to fuse their physical experiences with a spiritual connection to the world we inhabit. This exploration enhances the dancer’s artistic expression while also offering the dancer an invigorating opportunity that blends the physical experience with a spiritual connection to the world in which we live.
