Physical Description
Extent: 1 videocassette (U-matic) (30 min.) : sound, color ; 3/4 in
Sally Fitt, who teaches anatomy and kinesiology in the department of modern dance at the University of Utah, discusses the role of science as the facilitator of dance, helping dancers to reach and retain their full potential. She notes the benefits of dance in education, which generally surmount the problems caused by faulty teaching. In describing her book Dance kinesiology, she compares her approach with Lulu Sweigard's work in ideokinesis, proposing the use of these studies and others in obtaining a fuller picture of body mechanics in dance.
