Misty Copeland – Ballerina

Hard Body linked to an inspiring ad. The theme is I WILL WHAT I WANT.

Misty was first introduced to ballet on a basketball court at the Boys and Girls Club in the LA area.

By ballet standards, she didn’t fit the mold. So, she broke it and cast a new one. Fifteen years later, Misty is a soloist for the American Ballet Theatre.

why dancers have low ACL injury rates

Kim Shore-Bechard linked to this important video. Must watch.

NYU Langone’s Harkness Center for Dance Injuries (HCDI) performed a study on the biomechanics of jump landing, comparing athletes and dancers to learn more about the incidence of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries in both groups.

From this study, HCDI has been able to identify training methods that dancers implement early on that can be useful to athletes who experience a higher rate of ACL injuries than dancers.
