The Laban notation has two main sets of symbols. The first symbols denote the parts of the body and the second notation represents the position of these parts of the body in space. See below for more details.

The different parts of the body: arm, forearm, hand, head, leg, feet, etc. each part of the mobilizable body has its symbol.

The movements are noted with a polygon whose shape tends to indicate the position in space. The diagram of the positions of the **labanotation** makes it possible to represent the movement of the part of the body in space (in 3 dimensions) around it.

A complete move (a figure or a dance in kinetography) is a set of movements that can be simultaneous or successive in time. The elements of the **labanotation** are usually written in a table whose ordinates (vertical axis) represent the time (from bottom to top) and the columns represent the laban notation performed simultaneously. From the center to the outside the movements concern the body, the legs then the arms, then the hand, then the head.
