New dance science book released

By Brittany Duggan

Human Kinetics Publishers has recently released Dance Anatomy, a new dance book by author Jacqui Greene Haas. The book provides a view into how muscles contribute to improved technique, injury prevention and artistic expression for dancers. Each chapter focusses on a specific region of the body and the book includes over 200 full-colour illustrations to represent various exercises designed by Haas. A former professional ballet dancer, Haas holds a BA in dance from the University of South Florida and an athletic training certificate from the University of Cincinnati. She is currently the athletic trainer for the Cincinnati Ballet (and has been since 1989) as well as the director of the dance medicine division of Wellington Orthopedics in Cincinnati, Ohio. In addition to her book, Haas’ writing has been published in Dance magazine and Advance Rehabilitation magazine.
