"Dancers often have an inaccurate perception of the joint action and muscle use in turnout. Clarifying the anatomical reality helps them to use it efficiently"

(Daniels, 2007).
"Confusion regarding the use of turnout is prevalent. Dancers are frequently uncertain how much turnout they have or how to use it properly"

 (Grossman et al., 2005).
"Since many dancers are visual, kinesthetic, & spatial learners, it is important to address multiple styles through anatomical drawings, skeletons, somatics, palpation, self-touch, imagery, & spatial instructions"
(Daniels, 2007).

“Loved the first printable”

Loved the first printable so much that I had to come back for just about everything else! Thank you for making them so beautiful 😍

“I liked your analogy of the brain”

The way you explained mental capacity  of younger vs older minds. It really stuck with me, the image of a box getting more full trying to grasp several things at once instead of applying to knowledge they had.

"I loved the tips and cues"

As I am a very “have to do” learner and visual learner being able to have those examples & demonstrations it was like a light bulb clicking on for me.
