Dancers are Athletes.
One of my guilty pleasures each summer is watching So You Think You Can Dance, which began last night. I love the show because the dancers do such amazing feats with their bodies that I find fascinating! I noticed they changed their intro credits and included a " Sport Science" twist showing the angles and lines that the dancers create as they move. So, being the science geek that I am, I went looking for an analysis of what dancers really do during their routines. I found that Sport Science on ESPN actually did an analysis with two of the professional dancers from Dancing With the Stars.
