I have two books to recommend for those teachers and dancers curious about anatomy. Both apply really well to dance, martial arts, yoga or any of the movement arts. They are written by a physical therapist (physiotherapist is what they're called in Europe; the author studied and lived in France and was also a dancer)The first on is "Anatomy of Movement" by Blandine Calais-Germain. The second one is written by Ms. Calais-G, with Andree Lamotte. The second one is "Anatomy of Movement: Exercises" a sequel to the first one; ie., you have to read the first one first; the second one probably won't make sense, unless you already know your anatomy inside out and upside down. They both have excellent photos and drawings which illustrate the anatomy quite well. There are many books on health, anatomy etc "for dancers" out there...these are the two best I've run into because they offer text, drawings, and photos, which make a lot more sense than any book offering only any one of those. They are published by Eastland Press, Seattle. <p>[This message has been edited by trina (edited February 24, 2002).]

Great books, Trina. I think I mentioned them in some threads a while back. I have them, use them, and recommend them to my clients that are interested because they are clear and easy to understand. Thanks for bringing them up.

Thanks Trina! All we get at school is the anatomy coloring book (which was helpful but more so for diagrams than anything else), so its up to me to do extensive outside research on the subject.<p>[This message has been edited by Misa_danseuse (edited February 25, 2002).]
