Dance Training for Gymnastics.
This book views gymnastics as both sport and art and provides gymnasts with an introduction to the types of dance training that can enhance their performances. Dance training routines that incorporate several dance styles are presented to help gymnasts acquire polish, prevent injuries, improve their body alignment, express their creativity, and develop their own style. The most common steps and movements from ballet, modern dance, folk dance, and jazz dance are described and illustrated. The origins of their dance steps are discussed and it is explained how to apply them to gymnastics. Definitions are included, as well as checklists, and sample class outlines. (JD)
