Karen Clippinger’s first two editions of Dance Anatomy and Kinesiology were hailed as the standard in the field. This third edition builds on that success by retaining its scientific perspective while making the material even more accessible to students and teachers and by bringing in a significant amount of new material.

What’s New?
In an effort to further enhance learning, Dance Anatomy and Kinesiology offers a wealth of new material and tools to make this edition the best yet:
  • Nearly 300 anatomical illustrations—now in full color to clearly show muscle movements and technique considerations, setting the book apart from others in its field
  • A new introductory chapter to cover basic terminology all in one place
  • A new recurring Understanding Check element that helps students demonstrate their grasp of the material before moving on
  • An updated suite of online instructor and student ancillaries to support the text
  • New interactive art and table activities that aid with identifying bones and muscles and learning muscle actions, delivered online through HKPropel
  • More diverse dance styles addressed throughout the book and represented in photographs
The instructor guide features a sample syllabus and course outline, chapter outlines, lab assignments, and sample tests. An expanded presentation package provides more PowerPoint slides and additional graphics, now in color, that reinforce each chapter’s key points. In this edition, the number of slides has increased from 285 to more than 600, and the presentation package now contains over 100 photos.

Through HKPropel, students have access to interactive Understanding Check activities, flash cards, practice quizzes with automatic feedback, and 19 video clips that demonstrate technique and offer correction guidance.

The final chapter is revised to provide a summary and applications, including more practical content in the form of summary figures or tables for bones, joints, muscle actions, and alignment evaluation, as well as sample mat exercises for dance conditioning. And throughout the book, Clippinger has updated content to simplify, add more practical material, and share best practices for injury prevention and rehabilitation.

Primary Focus
The third edition of the book retains its emphasis on presenting the anatomical and kinesiological material that is essential for dancers to understand. The text includes descriptions of joint structure, key muscles, movement analysis, sample strength and flexibility exercises, common alignment problems, select joint mechanics, and special considerations for dance for each region of the body.

The third edition still features the Concept Demonstration and Dance Cues special elements. The former provides movement experiences for dancers to better understand potentially difficult concepts, while the latter helps the dancer reflect on the anatomical basis of commonly used cues used in teaching dance technique.

Empowers Instructors and Dancers
This new edition of Dance Anatomy and Kinesiology will give teachers a clearer picture of the anatomical and kinesiological factors that aid in generating technique cues and identifying technique problems, and it will help them become more effective and empower dancers to realize their potential and artistic vision.

Summary
Karen Clippinger, MSPE, received her master’s degree in exercise science from the University of Washington in 1984. She is a professor emerita at California State University, Long Beach (CSULB), where she taught functional anatomy for dance and dance science courses. She spearheaded the development of the bachelor’s degree in dance (option in dance science). Outside of CSULB, she taught anatomy or kinesiology for dancer credit courses at University of Calgary (2000), Scripps College (1999), and UCLA (1995-1998).

Prior to her academic career, Clippinger worked as a clinical kinesiologist for 19 years, including at Loma Linda University Medical Center, where she helped develop the medical program for performing artists. She has worked with hundreds of dancers and performers, including members of Pacific Northwest Ballet, Joffrey Ballet, Mark Morris Dance Group, Bill Evans and Company, Alwin Nikolais, and Cirque du Soleil. Clippinger also consulted for the U.S. Weightlifting Federation, U.S. Race Walking Team, California Governor's Council on Physical Fitness and Sports, and the Danish Wounded Warriors Project.

Clippinger is a renowned international presenter who has given more than 450 presentations related to kinesiological considerations in Pilates, dance, and fitness. Her many dance presentations include faculty in-services for Cornish College of the Arts, Pacific Northwest Ballet, and the Royal Danish Ballet as well as presentations for dance students at the American Dance Festival, Texas A&M, University of Calgary, and Winnipeg Contemporary Dancers.

Clippinger has written numerous articles, three chapters, and the second edition of this text. She coauthored Pilates Anatomy with Rael Isacowitz. She served as a founding coeditor in chief of Journal of Dance Medicine and Science (1996-2005) and in 2021 received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the International Association for Dance Medicine and Science.
