Experience the raw energy and aesthetic beauty of dance as you perfect your technique with Dance Anatomy. Featuring hundreds of full-color illustrations, Dance Anatomy presents more than 100 of the most effective dance, movement, and performance exercises, each designed to promote correct alignment, improved placement, proper breathing, and prevention of common injuries. The exercises are drawn in stunning detail, capturing the dancer in motion and highlighting the active muscles associated with each movement so you can develop and strengthen different areas of the body. You will clearly see how muscular development translates into greater poise and elegance on the stage.

Each chapter addresses a key principle of movement to help you improve performance, beginning with the center of the body, where dance begins. You will learn exercises to target specific areas, such as shoulders and arms, pelvis, and lower legs to enhance flexibility and ensure safety. You will also discover more efficient ways of improving your lines and technique by implementing a supplementary conditioning program that takes into account your changing cycles of classes, practices, and times of rest.

Regardless of your ability level or dance style, Dance Anatomy will help you master the impeccable balance, intense muscular control, and grace to prepare you for your next leading role!

Industry Reviews

Dance Anatomy brings to life the relationship between muscle development and dancing. It is a must-read for every dancer.”

Victoria Morgan

Artistic Director and CEO of Cincinnati Ballet

“Jacqui Haas has created the perfect tool for teachers and dancers of all forms and styles of dance. Dance Anatomy allows one to see the relationship between each exercise and the goal of refining a dancer’s physique and improving technique.”

James Nelson

Executive Director of Houston Ballet

“Jacqui Haas is one of my heroes in dance medicine. She speaks with the accomplished wisdom of two careers: dance and health care. Her new edition of Dance Anatomy is a must-have for all dancers and dance teachers who care about how their dancing bodies work. Her approach to anatomy will inspire a new generation of dancers to embrace the essential combination of technical excellence and whole-person wellness. Quite honestly, the book revolutionized how I teach kinesiology to dancers. It’s also an excellent resource to help health care practitioners understand the anatomical foundations of dance practice. Bottom line? Buy it! Read it! Then offer the knowledge to others.”
