Essential Dance Medicine

International Encyclopedia of Dance

This encyclopedia is full text and available online and addresses all areas of dance. It is scholarly, with signed articles and bibliographies. It does have some entries relevant to this assignment, most notably Dance Medicine, Kinesiology, and Body Therapies.  It does not have much else relevant, so may not be of significant use.

HINTS FOR USE:
