I have been dancing for 17 years, and have always loved anatomy, and this is one of the few books that truly combines my two passions. As a physical therapy veteran (have been in and out of PT since a young age) and a physical therapy student, this book is a great guide for dancers, their teachers, and their physical therapists. Many of the exercises in this book I have done in PT sessions, and they have helped me improve not only my strength but my technique. The author does a great job of not only explaining complex anatomy of the movements, but also relating it to various dance forms that makes it interesting and relevant to the reader. A phenomenal book for any serious dancers, and anyone who teaches or treats them.
