- We can order this
An accomplished dancer and gymnast himself, Tom Welsh wrote this book to empower conscientious dancer-athletes to take an active role in directing their own training and development. His clear, straightforward explanations of important concepts in conditioning hone in on the physical capabilities that are key to success not only for dancers but also for gymnasts, ice-skaters, and other athletes for whom strength and flexibility, precise alignment, and movement efficiency are high priorities. With an expert's eye, he distills complex insights into human kinetics into a format that is immediately useful.
The applicability and accessibility of Welsh's approach has been extensively tested in his many classes and seminars across the country. Precision athletes who are serious about avoiding injury, improving fitness, and increasing physical capability will find this comprehensive yet concise reference invaluable.
