Praise for Dance Science
"Ideally suited for college-aged dancers, it serves as a good introduction that orients the reader to his or her body while at the same time introduces scientific concepts and vocabulary. The practical and experiential activities alone make this book an invaluable part of any dancer’s or dance teacher’s library."
- Margaret Wilson, Associate Professor, University of Wyoming
"A spectacular contribution to the field! Filled with wonderful imagery and clear examples. It is a “must read” for dance teachers everywhere and a highly accessible text for students."
- Jane Baas, Chair, Department of Dance, Western Michigan University
"Written for dancers by a dance physical therapist and teacher who trained as a dancer. Readers will find the skills it teaches and the advice it offers relevant, helpful and easy to use."
- Tom Welsh, Dance Faculty, Florida State University
For students of human movement, kinesiology, dance science, and dancers, this book takes a positive approach to what a dancer can do to dance better through an understanding of anatomy and an analysis of movement which, in turn, will decrease injury rates. It presents anatomy and motion in a dance-specific way that teaches readers to appreciate and take ownership of their bodies.
