Electromyographic Comparison of Grand Battement Devant at the Barre, in the Center, and Traveling
This study examined utilization of the trunk and lower extremity muscles during grand battement devant in three conditions: at the barre (supported stationary condition in 1st position), in the center (unsupported stationary ...
Development of a Portable Anchored Dynamometer for Collection of Maximal Voluntary Isometric Contractions in Biomechanics Research on Dancers
Surface electromyography (sEMG) has been used in dance medicine research since the 1970s, but normalization procedures are not consistently employed in the field. The purpose of this project was to develop a portable ...
Examination of weight transfer strategies during the execution of grand battement devant at the barre, in the center, and traveling
The purpose of this study was to examine grand battement devant at the barre, in the center, and traveling through space. The primary focus was to consider weight transfer in three conditions: from two feet to one foot for ...
Biomechanical Research in Dance: A Literature Review
The authors reviewed the literature, published from 1970 through December 2009, on biomechanical research in dance. To identify articles, the authors used search engines, including PubMed and Web of Science, five previous ...

The effects of rest and subsequent training on selected physiological parameters in professional female classical dancers
The purpose of this study was to assess the effects of a six-week summer break and of dance preparations at the beginning of the new season following the break, on selected physiological parameters. Seventeen professional ...
Muscular Strength: Applications for Dancers
Muscle fibers can generally be divided into slow and fast twitch according to their contraction speed. Even though in individual normally has the same ratio of slow/fast muscle fibers throughout his or her body, the ...
