The dancer's body, the main tool of his work, is subject to multiple
constraints. This requires the dancers themselves, the students and their teachers,
to know the physical risks linked to their profession and not to
underestimate the symptoms. This guide, unique in its kind, offers a real
"Tour" of the body, from head to toe, and aims to educate young people
dancers respecting their health. It contains a set of essential information
on hygiene, injury prevention and problem treatment
common health practices among dancers. It provides specific advice
on the themes of body awareness and self-image, eating disorders,
fatigue fractures, as well as pathologies specifically related to
outside and knee, foot and toe disorders. Each chapter
deals with one and only one part of the body and ends - in a completely
innovative - with an immediate synthesis of five fundamental concepts, to
always remember, and five very effective exercises.
