Hello SignWriting List Members!

I am happy to tell you that there are several new developments to share, in SignWriting, DanceWriting and Movement Writing.

First, there are new DanceWriting developments...

Sutton Movement Writing is a large movement notation system that can record any human movement. It started with DanceWriting, which was very active from 1973-1980, and has been waiting quietly in the background for years ;-)

When SignWriting began to grow in the 1980s, our focus turned to SignWriting, since it is the section of the system that is the most used.

So the DanceWriting system has been waiting patiently for writers to become inspired, and for me to choose to focus on it.

In the past few weeks I have been blessed with a new DanceWriting project that started on Facebook by Sutthikhun Pheangphongsai.

Thank you, Sutthikhun, for this beautiful new work:
