Abstract: In this special issue of Voices of Notators: Approaches to Writing a Score, eight authors sharetheir unique process of creating and implementing their approach to notating movement, and theydescribe how that process transforms them as researchers, analysts, dancers, choreographers,communicators, and teachers. These researchers discuss the need to capture, to form, to generate,and to communicate ideas using a written form of dance notation so that some past, present, orfuture experience can be better understood, directed, informed, and shared. They are organizedroughly into themes motivated by relationships between them and their methodological similaritiesand differences. The papers are arranged to reveal four themes present among these authors. Thethemes are: (1) revisiting notation history to rethink the future understanding of notation, (2)focusing and developing notation so it can function to capture traditions of the movement formbeing embodied to support accurate learning, (3) working with technology to capture, document,analyze, and research movement; and (4) practitioner’s perspectives papers that examineapproaches to notating scores to focus the tool of notation to maximize the teaching and learningexperiences of the participants and, hence, those who use the resultant scores.
