Anatomy Posters

$10.00$109.09 AUD

As dance teachers it is imperative to help 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

PDF Anatomy Poster.To purchase a downloadable PDF version of any of the Anatomy Posters, simply select the poster ie. ‘The Foot & Ankle Muscles’  and proceed to check.

Hardcopy Anatomy Poster.  If you wish to purchase the hardcopy anatomy posters, please select the hardcopy version from the dropdown.  If you have any questions please email accounts@theballetblog.com. Please note that hardcopy posters are only available to anyone living in Australia.

Description

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 Foot Series:

  • The Foot and Ankle Muscles. Understanding the anatomy of the dancer’s foot will help you use more of your available range and help prevent foot and ankle injures longterm.
  • The Calf Complex.Understanding the anatomy of the different parts of your calf muscles can help ensure well rounded training and avoid overworking any one particular area.
  • Shin Splints. Many dancers experience pain in the shins at some point in their training, and often get told that they have “Shin Splits”. Shin Splints is not actually a diagnosis, and any pain in the shins must be correctly identified to allow appropriate and successful treatment to be started. 
  • Plantar Fascia Pain. Many dancers and even more dance teachers complain of pain in the arch/sole of the foot. Many of these individuals get diagnosed with “Plantar Fasciitis” and are often advised to ice, stretch, and massage the plantar fascia area. While this advice is extremely common, unfortunately it rarely resolves the issue and symptoms can persist for years
  • Pain at the Back of the Ankle.Pain at the back of the ankle is an issue for many dancers, and often gets misdiagnosed as Achilles Tendonitis. In most cases this is not actually the issue, so getting a correct diagnosis is essential. 
  • How to Improve your Pointe Range.Forcefully stretching feet usually mobilises what is already mobile, and compresses structures in the back of the ankle, rather than targeting the elements that are actually restricting your range.

 

** Coming Soon – The Core Series**: 

  • 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.
