Review quote

"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."

Assistant Professor of Athletic Training and Director of Science and Health in Artistic Performance at Ohio University

Fellow of the International Association for Dance Medicine & Science
