Motor learning theory from a dance perspective

As dance training evolves and becomes more complex, knowledge of motor behaviour is foundational in helping dancers learn and master new skills and become more efficient in integrating the skills.

Motor Learning and Control for Dance is the first resource to address motor learning theory from a dance perspective.

It addresses many related topics that are important to the discipline, such as imagery and improvisation.

This book will help performers and teachers blend science with pedagogy to meet the challenge of artistry and technique in preparing for dance performance.

Dancers interested in performance from the recreational to professional levels will also learn ways to enhance their technical and artistic progress. Aspiring dancers and instructors will explore how to develop motor skills, how to control movement on all levels, and—most important—how motor skills are best taught and learned.
