A wonderful resource  March 14, 2011
by


This textbook is a great way to educate the dancer and is also a great tool to use to educate students who are pursuing a career in performing arts medicine. It has very detailed and helpful information along with understandable imagery of the dancer's anatomy. This is very helpful in training and developing technique. I've already recommended this book to several dancers, dance teachers, and physical therapists.






Dance Anatomy: 5 out of 5 stars based on 1 user reviews.

Summary

Powerful, expressive, and compelling! Now you can see what it takes to be a stronger, more elegant dancer. Featuring over 200 full-color illustrations, Dance Anatomy visually depicts the unique relationship between muscle development and aesthetic movement as never before.

Dance Anatomy features 82 of the most effective dance, movement, and performance exercises, each designed to promote perfect alignment, improved placement, proper breathing, and prevention of common injuries. In stunning detail, the accompanying illustration captures the dancer in motion and highlights the active muscles associated with each movement.

You’ll learn how to modify exercises to target specific areas to enhance flexibility and reduce muscle tension. You’ll also learn to put it all together to personalize a program based on your style of dance, level of expertise, and individual needs and goals.

Whether you seek to optimize performance, add a new movement to your repertoire, or minimize muscle fatigue, stress, and injury, Dance Anatomy is your perfect partner.
