Abstract/OtherAbstract:
This review introduces different techniques used in biomechanics that have been used in analyzing dance movement. Biomechanics provides information not only for analysis of motion, but for understanding muscle use, forces acting on the body, issues of motor control, and the interaction between any one body part and the body as a whole. The goal of this review is to highlight the role that biomechanical analysis plays in understanding dance movement, with applications for teaching, skill enhancement, and injury prevention.
