From Deborah Vogel:
"I now have Anatomy Coloring
Pages for the young dancer available in the store. They are in a
pdf format that you do multiple copies of for your younger students.
The muscles that are included in the coloring pages are:
1. rotators (turnout muscles)
5. Adductor (inner thigh)
6. Abductor (lateral hip)
8. Soleus (deeper calf muscle that determines depth of demi plié)
10. Deltoid (that lifts the arm)
Each page demonstrates the action of the muscle, has an insert of
what the actual muscle looks like, and at the bottom of each page
is a sentence describing the action in simple terms. Perfect for the
youngest (6 - 8 yrs) to begin learning about their body!
The price is right - only $9.95 so check them out!
“Education is the key to injury prevention”
Deborah has given ballet teachers a tool with which to train students anatomy they need to know....and I believe that those students who feel frustrated with "doomed with my body type", can learn how to get more flexible and improve safely.
What a wonderful teaching aid!
