The Turnout Muscles (The Hip Series)

Visualising where the six deep external rotators are and how they contribute to external rotation in different positions can dramatically help improve control of turnout in class. In this poster we discuss each of the external rotators in detail,  along with exercise ideas.

The Hamstrings (The Hip Series)

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. In this poster we discuss each muscle within this group in detail, along with exercise ideas.

 

The Gluteal Muscles (The Hip Series)

Efficient activation and timing of the gluteal muscles is essential to maintain a healthy spine and pelvis. many dancers overuse some aspects of the gluteals while underusing others. In this poster we discuss the Gluteus Maximus, Gluteus Minimus, Gluteus Medius detail, along with exercise ideas.

 

The Inner Thigh Muscles (The Hip Series)

The inner thigh area is made up of many different muscles. Adductor Magnus, Adductor Brevis, and Adductor Longus work in conjunction with several other muscles to stabilise or adduct the hip in various positions. Training these muscles correctly is essential for long term hip health. In this poster we discuss each of the inner thigh muscles in detail, along with exercise ideas.

 

The Hip Flexors (The Hip Series)

Many dancers with tight hips spend hours stretching their hip flexors, BUT 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. In this poster we discuss each of the hip flexors in detail, along with exercise ideas.

Description

As dance educators it is imperative to help your students understand the anatomy of the dancer’s body. With this in mind we have created a series of A3 posters designed to be displayed in your studio, to make it easy to understand and explain the anatomy behind the movement. With clear anatomical images and descriptions of covering areas of interest, along with analysis of common dance injures, they are an essential tool for training intelligent dancers.

The Hip Series includes:

  • 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.
