The Student Dancer - Emotional Aspects of the Teaching & Learning of Dance $22.99

Julia Buckroyd

Published by DanceBooks

This is the first book of its kind to deal with the psychological as opposed to the physical aspects of dance training

Julia Buckroyd brings together the fields of education, welfare, counselling & psychology to consider the ways these deepen our understanding of dance training, and how they can be practically applied in vocational training schools

Following the substantial evidence showing a high incidence of illness, smoking, injury, and eating disorders among dancers and trainees, Buchroyd argues that current training is damaging to the welfare of students. With examples of good practice and many ideas, she considers The Self and the Body, Adolescence and Dance Training, Learning in Groups, Male Trainees, Eating Disorders, Career Transition

This valuable book is essential reading for teachers, students and administrators involved with professional dance training
