Dancers may have more consciously learned movement patterns than any other profession. Among the many forms and techniques of dance there are often conflicting instructions, and the dancer must translate these ideas into movement and artistry. This book is intended to be a workbook and playbook through which dancers and all movers can improve the quality of their movement.

Through clear, concise text, numerous illustrations and guided movement explorations, learn to embody basic anatomy. Decode common dance habits and develop a conscious approach to moving with ease and pleasure.

Dancers, dance teachers, and anyone with an interest in the Alexander Technique and movement will want a copy of What Every Dancer Needs to Know About the Body.
