Laban’s ‘gliding’ as a basic effort

Translated to the dimensional space of genetic semantics with Laban’s dimensions : Direct (Depth), Sustained (Breadth), Light (Height), gliding is associated with the code 010 (Green).

Laban The Cube

Rudolf Laban, (1966, 2011) Eight Basic Efforts. Gliding: Sustained, Light, Direct. This effort is a smooth movement, generally performed with bound flow. There is a high level of control in this movement which comes from muscular counter-tensions. This is the way in which this effort differs from floating; floating does not have that level of control.
