THE SCIENCE OF MUSCLES

WHY IT MATTERS HOW YOU MOVE

According to the Journal of Athletic Training...

‘‘as many as 60% to 90% of dancers are injured during their careers, and most of their injuries affect the lower extremities and back... this extremely high percentage attests to the compelling need for preventive action.’’

Everything Working Together

The anatomy of the body is designed with both intricacy and intellect. Understanding both the anatomy and how the body is intended to move optimizes results. The science of muscles teaches us when it’s best to stretch the body and how, the proper alignment for injury prevention, utilizing agonist vs. antagonist muscles, and the importance behind developing muscle groups we often don’t place emphasis on.  

BUT, how do we learn this? Where do we find the time and resources? How do we start putting this knowledge to use? The frustration and overwhelm starts here. 

There is a huge disconnect in both teaching and learning when we can’t see what we are doing, and therefore feel that our goals are  impossible. We don’t see progress.  We are left thinking ‘are we enough?’  

But what if we could see it? Simplify it? Maximize our time? Make difficult concepts easy and understandable? Bring anatomy to life? 

Relative Motion bridges the gap. It makes internal anatomy visual, simplifies explanations so there is true understanding of our body in motion, and reconnects us to the beauty and strength behind the movement. 

We believe that every dancer is enough. With Relative Motion, the key to empowerment is yours.
