Anatomy of the Moving Body is a complete course in bones, muscles, and joints designed specifically for dancers, movement educators, students, and somatic therapists. In this comprehensive second edition, Theodore Dimon simultaneously demystifies and brings to life the structure and mechanics of the human body. Featuring all-new illustrations that use a three-dimensional digital model of the human anatomical form, this book contains thirty-one chapters, each covering a distinct region of the body.
