Anatomy Posters – Now Available
$10.00 – $40.00 AUD
As dance teachers it is imperative for your students to understand the Anatomy of the dancer’s body, so with this in mind we have created a series of Anatomy posters for you to print out and display in your studio. All posters have been designed in a A3 format. These posters are a great addition to the studio, to make it easy for teachers to explain the anatomy behind the movement to dance students. With clear anatomical images and descriptions of how each muscle works in a dancer, they are an essential tool for training intelligent dancers

The Hip Series:
- The Turnout Muscles. Visualising where your turnout muscles are and how they contribute to turnout in different positions can dramatically help improve control of turnout in class.
- The Gluteal Muscles. Efficient activation and timing of the gluteal muscles is essential to maintain a heathy spine and pelvis. many dancers overuse some aspects of the gluteals while underusing others.
- The Hamstring. Many dancers focus on stretching their hamstrings, but few are aware of the nuances of each muscle within this group. Keep in mind that excessive tension is often a sign of compensation for weakness elsewhere, and strengthening these muscles is essential to developing optimal flexibility.
- The Inner Thigh Muscles.The inner thigh area is made up of many different muscles. Adductor Magnus, Brevis, and Longus work in conjunction with several other muscles to stabilise or adduct the hip in various positions. Understanding the location of these muscles and training them correctly is essential for long term hip health.
- The Hip Flexors. Many dancers with tight hips spend hours stretching their hip flexors, when unfortunately this is often doing more harm than good. Understanding the relationships between the different hip flexors, and why they get tight, is essential to maximising range of motion in the hips.
- The Core Muscles – The Inner Unit. Mastering subtle control of the inner core muscles is essential for any dancer wanting to achieve Effortless Dynamic stability.
- The Outer Core – The Dynamic Slings. Often termed “the outer unit”. effective cross patterning via the functional lines / fascial slings helps create dynamic core stability. The base of these slings is developed when a toddler spends time crawling, but this patterning must be reinforced with progressive training.
- The Foot Muscles. Understanding the anatomy of the pointed foot will help you use more of your available range and help prevent foot and ankle injures longterm.
