Imagery, touch, and movement all come into play when a dancer is trying to improve alignment, coordination, and other components of the art. Fellow dancers have described this text as "easy to read" and a "must-have resource", and I'm right there with them. Franklin delivers each piece of information with deep knowledge of historical background, allowing the reader to absorb the knowledge rather than to take it at face value.
Franklin's expertise in dance is noteworthy. Not only is he the founder of the Franklin Institute of Switzerland, but he also has more than 35 years of experience as a professional dancer. He first began to share the imagery exercises from this book in 1986; however, Franklin admits that "alignment seems to have been a basic necessity of life" since the early days of Egyptian culture. I was pleased to see that he references the development of ideokinesis and its founders Mabel Todd (see: The Thinking Body) and Lulu Sweigard (see also: Human Movement Potential: Its Ideokinetic Facilitation).
Ultimately, Franklin's book on alignment and movement techniques is designed to promote wellness among dancers. Dancers can say goodbye to tension and the potential for serious back injuries. In fact, anybody interested in movement and bodywork will find this to be a pleasing read.
When you get it, you have to sit with some paragraphs and let it sink in. Then read it many more times to see how it is interwoven. No superfulous words, no junk thrown in. It all is purposeful. Beautifully done.
