Dance Science Research: What can we put into practise?!

In past articles, we have attempted to dissect some research in concise bitesize chunks to allow Strength and Conditioning to be applied to every Dancer who reads these pages... This time is no different, only we will be providing a greater insight into Dance Science research and giving you a chance to see how we directly apply well researched principles to Dancers who work with Science in Dance. So... grab a coffee and strap in because this one will be a ride through the literature. BUT FIRST... A Story. Whether we like it or not Dance Science Research is around 40-50 years behind Sport Science in general, nevertheless there are some major outfits in the UK, and Worldwide, attempting to bri
