Hello again everbody...getting into the christmas spirit? :D

My question....I'm doing a project at college on the hip and I was wondering if you could give me some information.
(I've searched on various search engines but just wanted some fellow dancers etc experiences & knowledge)

How is the hip used in different styles of dance i.e. ballet it turns out the leg etc?

How the hips works??

What injuries can occur and what does rehabilitation consist of?

And any other bits of info you'd like to add...!!
Thank you from Dancer 246

I know this reply is late but I wanted to add something to the discussion! Hip injuries happen when a student is forcing turnout in ballet positioning and movement especially. If your rotator cuff is rubbing against the socket area in the wrong way - it will inevitably hurt you. For this reason: be precise in your ballet technique turn out positions. Seek the best dance instruction you can possibly find! This incorrect turnout can stem from poor body alignment and placement. It is crucial that a student takes pre-ballet courses with the uttmost seriousness. A fellow dancer of mine had to have a complete hip replacement and she was only 26. Please take care!
