About the Author:

Andrea Watkins was a professor for 30 years at the University of Massachusetts–Amherst, where she taught numerous dance courses. She has contributed to various journals, including Medical Problems of Performing Artists and Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport. Priscilla Clarkson is the coauthor of Exercise and the Female—A Life Span Approach and Science of Dance Training.

From Library Journal:

Geared toward dancers, this volume is designed to be used in correlation with, not as a substitute for, instruction. Body conditioning will improve technique and decrease injury, state the authors, both dance instructors at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. The student may follow an overall conditioning program, or select strength and/or flexibility exercises for specific parts of the body. Donald F. Featherstone and Rona Allen's Dancing Without Danger (Barnes, 1970) and, to a lesser degree, Gretchen Ward Warren and Susan Cook's Classical Ballet Technique ( LJ 1/90) also promote proper technique to avoid injury, but both are limited to ballet; Daniel Nagrin's How To Dance Forever ( LJ 9/1/88) is a very personal and unscientific approach to the subject. Instructors and students both will find this well-researched and clearly written volume most useful. Recommended for college libraries with dance programs.
