Example text

When you observe your teacher demonstrating a sequence, first see the body as a whole, then focus on the parts that are moving or nonmoving. Developing Your Kinesthetic Sense In dance, as in other arts, you use your five senses. However, the focus often moves quickly from one sense to another. Kinesthetic sense is defined as muscle, bone, and joint sense. As a beginning dancer your visual understanding of a particular movement is primary; it helps you replicate that movement with your body. Next, your aural sense is applied when you replicate the movement in relation to the timing and the music.

To avoid strains while you are learning or practicing new exercises and steps, try to execute movement within your range and know when to stop. Doing too much strenuous exercise or too many repetitions is in line with the adage no pain, no gain. However, a better strategy is to slowly increase the number of repetitions and the intensity of the exercise to gain with less pain and more longevity. For example, beginning dance students execute most leg extensions at about 45 degrees or lower. Extending a leg to 90 degrees may be a long-term goal, but you should not start there.

Move away from possible danger. wwRest. Stop dancing so that the injury can heal properly. You must rest so that you can recover before you return to dancing. If you are in severe pain while resting, consult a physician. wwIce. To reduce swelling, which is uncomfortable and can slow healing, place an ice pack on the injured area several times a day. Place the ice on for 20 minutes, then remove it for 20 minutes before placing it on again. wwCompression. To help reduce swelling, constrict the injured area by wrapping it with an elastic bandage.
