Together, the 13 14 1. The Body: The Basis for Dance skeletal muscles weigh more than the entire skeleton. So, in a dancer, the skeletal muscles account for about 40 per cent of body weight, while the skeleton only accounts for 15 per cent of a person’s total weight. Because of their importance for movement and dance, the structure and function of the skeletal muscles will be described below in greater detail. Muscle fibre Myofibril Structure The muscle – what moves the bone Skeletal muscles consist of long, thin muscle cells.

Lateral bending External and internal oblique abdominal muscles, one side Erector spinae muscle, one side. Rotation Multifidus muscle Deep rotators External and internal oblique abdominal muscle. 16 The deep rotators and the multifidus muscle are the deepest layer of the intrinsic spinal musculature. The Architecture of the Spine Man’s evolution from quadruped to biped and thus adopting upright gait led to the typical double “S” form of the spine. 1, p. 26): • Cervical lordosis (curved forwards) • Thoracic kyphosis (curved backwards) • Lumbar lordosis (curved forwards) • Sacral kyphosis (curved backwards) The double-S shape distributes the body weight equally front and back of the point of equilibrium; the joints are centred and balanced, thus reducing the necessity of muscle work.

Today, one thing seems certain: the genetically determined distribution of muscle fibres is virtually impossible to change, even with intensive training. Fast muscles can be changed temporarily into slow ones, but if training stops the change will rapidly be reversed. It is not possible to change slow fibres into fast ones through training. During the natural aging process the number of type 2 fibres decreases. This is one of the reasons we become slower as we get older. The Nervous System – the Body’s Conductor The Nervous System – the Body’s Conductor Learning dance steps, understanding corrections and translating them directly into movement; remembering choreography and performing it precisely in front of an audience and with total concentration: these are all everyday demands made of a dancer, or more precisely of his nervous system.
