Dance Anatomy and Kinesiology will help dancers learn anatomical and biomechanical  principles as they apply to dance performance. The text focuses on optimal dance movement and the related  principles for understanding the function of body joints. And by applying those principles, dancers can help reduce their risk of injury and enhance their performance longevity.

Dance Anatomy and Kinesiology includes special practical applications:
-Concept Demonstrations provide hands-on exercises to try.
-Tests and Measurements are specific to selected regions of the body
-Dance Cues help analyze cue effectiveness and promote optimal movement execution
-Study Questions and Applications help apply chapter concepts.
-Attachments provide the pronunciations, attachments, and key actions of the primary muscles covered in this text.
