Dance Across the Web this Week

Did you guys see this history of hip hop dance yet? (above) Jimmy Fallon has been pulling out all the stops this week for his new show and I’m loving this new video with Will Smith.

Also worth checking out are these two pieces on dancers and injuries. The first, a listing of common dance injuries. The second, a new study scientists are conducting where they map a dancer’s body as she moves to pinpoint injury hotspots. Turns out this is much more effective than an MRI because the body is in motion at the time of the scan.

And finally, a nice piece from Dance Advantage on why dance education is great for children’s brains.

Anything is Possible This Weekend

And some dance links from around the web to get your weekend started:
– We’ll all miss Shirley Temple and remember her legacy.
– How dance benefits the circulatory system.
– With all the talk of dance at the Olympics, here’s a good read on why ballet is an art, not a sport.
– As a writer & a dancer, I love this e-course that combines the two to make you a better dancer.
