“I’ve noticed through the years I’ve known Emily Scherb that in addition to being extraordinarily knowledgeable and generous, she is consistently curious, questing for a more complete model of human anatomy and movement. Applied Anatomy of Aerial Arts is a compendium of information pertinent to your body and to circus. Though thorough and detailed, it reads like a page-turner. It is filled with arcane knowledge from the most forward-thinking in the sports medical community, and every page yields discoveries. Through her practice she has enabled countless circus artists to continue to do what they love. With this book, she extends the performing life of an entire community of professionals.” —Terry Crane, cofounder and artistic director of Acrobatic Conundrum

Dr. Scherb covers everything from beginning hangs to advanced poses. Relate anatomy to your aerial practice with the help of the examples, including what not to do. Many injuries are going to be prevented by getting this book in the hands of every aerial student and teacher.” —Rebekah Leach, author of The Aerial Dance Manual Series and founder of Born to Fly Productions
