about this item

This textbook explains scientific information about human anatomy and kinesiology to help dancers better understand their bodies, optimize movement performance, and reduce the risk of injury. It focuses on the skeletal and muscular systems and aspects of biomechanics that relate to movements of joints, dance technique, and injury prevention, along with simple movement analysis for different body regions, special considerations for dance, and selected dance injuries. The final chapter provides a schema for analyzing full-body dance movements, to increase understanding of strength, flexibility, and technique issues. This edition has been reorganized and is meant to have greater accessibility to a wider range of dancers. It is more concise and meant for a one-semester undergraduate course. It also adds online access to web resources and video clips of technique and correction guidelines. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
