Written by a physicist with professional dance training, Physics and the Art of Dance explains how dancers can achieve better, safer performances through an understanding of physics in motion. Using simple, non-technical terms, Kenneth Laws combines his knowledge of both physics and dance to describe how the laws of gravity, momentum, and energy affect dancing bodies. The book explores the natural laws that govern the subtleties of balance, the techniques of leaps and pirouettes, and the impressive lifts and turns executed by ballet partners. Finally, Laws offers insight into two current discussions in the dance world--the effect of body size on ballet technique, and the relationship between science and the art of dance. Beautiful, original stop-action photographs by Martha Swope, along with clear diagrams, illustrate the concepts described in the text. Plus, an intriguing "puzzler" at the beginning of each chapter provides an engaging entr?e into the topics presented. For those who want a more advanced understanding of the physics, extensive appendices are provided. This new book combines the best features of Laws's widely acclaimed The Physics of Dance and Physics, Dance, and the Pas de Deux by Laws and Cynthia Harvey. Its expert application of the basic principles of physics to the art of dance will be an invaluable resource for dancers and dance instructors and will open a new level of appreciation for lovers of the form. It will also appeal to physicists who seek to include the arts in their scientific pursuits.

Published in France in 1987, this is the book in which Lecoq first set out his philosophy of human movement, and the way it takes expressive form in a wide range of different performance traditions. He traces the history of pantomime, sets out his definition of the components of the art of mime, and discusses the explosion of physical theatre in the second half of the twentieth century. Interviews with major theatre practitioners Ariane Mnouchkine and Jean-Louis Barrault by Jean Perret, together with chapters by Perret on Étienne Decroux and Marcel Marceau, fill out the historical material written by Lecoq, and a final section by Alain Gautré celebrates the many physical theatre practitioners working in the 1980s.

Take your parkour and free running skills to the next level For the first time, two of the very bestselling parkour and free running books have been put together in one single collection. Parkour Training - The Complete Collection on Excelling in the Art of Movement offers both advanced and beginning free runners simple and effective ways to improve their parkour abilities. Parkour Training - The Complete Collection on Excelling in the Art of Movement contains the following books: Parkour - A Beginner's Guide to Training and Excelling in the Art of Movement by Zach Rucker Free Running - A Beginner’s Guide on Training in Parkour and Free Running by Zach Rucker From the description of Parkour by Zack Rucker So many people are enslaved to their job, spending most of their working life chained to a desk and confined to a cubicle. Our bodies slowly deteriorate with this constant lack of movement, this sedentary lifestyle. Our bodies are amazing pieces of machinery, engineered to accomplish incredible physical movements, however most of us no longer get to experience this level of physicality. We take our bodies for granted, never pushing our limits while truly experiencing our environment. Parkour is the antithesis of this stationary, modern lifestyle that many have fallen trapped to. It offers us freedom, to once again be physical, to be able to not just embrace movement, but to love how our body moves, and how our body overcomes obstacles. Parkour - A Beginner's Guide to Training and Excelling in the Art of Movement doesn't want to just get you moving, it wants you to experience your body in a completely new way, helping you both hone your physicality as well as significantly improve your mental game. Take your first step to freedom and learn how parkour truly is the art of movement. From the description of Free Running by Zach Rucker Most of us never truly get the chance to feel free in our environments, we never get to experience the amazing skill and abilities that our bodies inherently have. We don't often push our own limits. Free running changes all of this. Parkour is an art of movement that has its roots in France. It is a practice that demands a high level of discipline. Free running does not view objects in the urban environment as buildings, sidewalks, and railings; it views these objects as opportunities. In training in free running, one is able to increase their physical abilities dramatically, from flexibility to strength to agility. Free running is the ultimate exercise. And the best part is that doing it is incredibly fun. Noted free runner Zach Rucker guides you through the amazing world of free running, teaching you how to train to be a free runner as well as running through the basic moves and a few of the more advanced moves. Learning about the benefits of free running has never been easier!
