Beginning 2017, Liu has served as a dance teacher, researcher and interdisciplinary artist at Jiang Nan University. She holds a BA from the department of dance at Wuhan Conservatory of Music and received an MFA in costumes, culture, and dance performance. Liu is certificated in Elementary Motif Notation by the DNB, and has completed the Introduction to Laban Movement Analysis course offered by LIMS in 2018.
Since 2007, she has been using Labanotation in both research and practice. She has hosted numerous Laban-related research programs and published four articles related to Labanotation in the Beijing Dance Academy Journal and in other Chinese journals as well. In her dance lessons, she uses Labanotation as a main method of analysis and movement creation as a means of better understanding the structure of the human body and her dancer’s movements, consequently introducing more students to Laban and the Labanotation system.
