Fixing These 5 Bad Habits Can Take Your Dancing to the Next Level

BY GAVIN LARSEN via www.pointemagazine.com Striving for higher extensions, more turnout and bigger jumps may be at the top of your agenda in daily class. But what about those finer points of your technique, the subtleties that make a dancer really shine? They need just as much of your attention, and letting seemingly innocuous bad habits linger will impact your overall dancing. “There are no shortcuts in ballet,” says Cynthia Harvey, artistic director of the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis School at American Ballet Theatre. “You can’t expect good results by ignoring details that are the building blocks of technique.” We break down five bad habits that are easy to overlook—but have a major impact. Knuckling Peff Modelski, a faculty member at Visceral Dance Chicago w...

Your Essential Guide to Dancers’ Back Injuries

BY ABIGAIL RAMINSKY via www.dancemagazine.com Why do back injuries seem to be so common these days among dancers? “It used to be that if you were in a company, you did all the work of that choreographer,” says Rocky Bornstein, a New York City–based physical therapist who specializes in professional dancers. “Now companies feel like they have to bring in choreographers to work with the company, so the work is much more eclectic.” More and more dancers are also building freelance careers, which forces them to hop between various styles. This is an unprecedented challenge for the body. Dr. William Hamilton, who was an orthopedic consultant for New York City Ballet and American Ballet Theatre for four decades, adds that even big companies are getting smaller, which puts...

From Professional Dancer to Professor of Dance

via www.dancemagazine.com In the final years of her decade-long career with the Lewitzky Dance Company, University of Arizona Associate Professor Amy Ernst began to develop an interest in dance injury prevention. She remembers feeling an urge to widen her understanding of dance and the body. Soon after retirement from the Company, she was hired by the Kerlan-Jobe Orthopaedic Clinic in Inglewood, California as a physical therapy assistant, where she worked for the next three and a half years. This work eventually led her to pursue an M.F.A. in dance at the University of Washington-Seattle. She remembers growing into the role of a professor during her time pursuing her degree. That incubation phase was critical. Ernst joined the faculty at the University of Arizona in 1995, and now as direct...
