Anatomy of the Moving Body from Theodore Dimon jr. is a complete course in bones, muscles, and joints designed specifically for dancers, movement educators, students, and somatic therapists.
In this second edition, the author 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. The specific muscles, bones, and joints are not only named, but also explained using down-to-Earth language.
This book includes anatomical terminology, origins and attachments of muscles and their related actions.
It also discusses the major functional systems such as the pelvis, ankle, shoulder girdle, and hand and structures relating to breathing and vocalization.
