Keith Bain

Keith Bain created a comprehensive discipline in the study of movement for performance and beginning in the 1950s pioneered many dance and movement courses. He is best known for establishing, and for many years leading, the movement studies course at the National Institute of Dramatic Arts (NIDA). All the luminaries of Australian stage and screen from the 1960s through to the 1980s were trained by him and influenced by his belief in the ‘infinite capacity of the human body to convey emotion and defy gravity.’
