Grossman, Gayanne; Krasnow, Donna; Welsh, Thomas M.
Journal of Dance Education, v5 n1 p15-27 2005
This article offers a specific example of the benefits that might result from integrating scientific principles into the daily practice of dance training. Using the mastery of turnout as our focus, we 1. describe the anatomy of turnout in terms familiar to the dance artist, 2. explore conditioning and imagery work designed to improve the use of turnout, and 3. outline a practical strategy for helping dancers use new turnout skills while they are dancing.
