Inhaltsangabe: Dancers experience pain, joy, frustration, rapture, failure, applause, and are above the worldly concerns of food, money, and financial security. They live only to dance.
Or do they?
The reality is dancers of all ages, types, and skill levels often experience incredible physical and psychological stress and have traditionally bore their pain in stoic silence.
In this much needed new book, Dance Magazine's Linda Hamilton offers dancers the same type of advice and understanding they have come to trust from her popular monthly column. Psychologist Hamilton--a former dancer with New York City Ballet under the legAndary George Balanchine--offers a complete resource for coping with the day to day pressures of being a dancer. Page after page is filled with the insight that can only come from a person who has been intimately involved in the world of dance.
Hamilton outlines strategies for dancers for dealing with a variety of common physical and psychological issues and shows how to be true to your passion and bring back the joy in dancing. The book is filled with answers to dancer's most often asked questions and offers practical methods for dealing with such difficult problems as eating disorders, substance abuse, ruthless competition, and performance anxiety. Advice for Dancers will teach you how to:
* Achieve you physical potential and select the dance technique that's right for you
* Find out which teaching practices you can trust and why
* Learn how to reach your optimal weight without compromising your energy, health, and career
* Develop healthy relationships both inside and outside the dance studio
* Use a variety of resources to get work, roles, and promotions
* Perform technical feats in front of an audience even when you are frightened
Advice for Dancers is a result of Hamiltion's extensive research and years clinical work with dancers and includes information for a survey of more that 1,000 dancers from across the country.
Über den Autor: LINDA H. HAMILTON Ph.D., is a columnist for Dance Magazine and a clinical psychologist in private practice in New York City.
