    OK, so I'm a wee biased, but this is great, and "danceKinesis", a program specifically about this, is a great way to do it.

    The best way to get a dancer's body is to buy her stuff first and ask politely.

    Thanks for sharing such an informative article. I liked the scientific view in an article most.

    Huh. I usually tell Igor to get me one. I've never asked him how he does it.

    A dancer isn't his athletic body. Certly for a dancer is important to have a low body fat or a lot of muscular, but I belive that energy and rhythm are the most important elements.. So I think that having an athletic body is important but only to improve the type of movement you want to be able to do.

    I have a sprinter's body and have always been told since I began competing at 9 that I needed to lose weight. It forced me into a horrible pattern of diet pills, bulimia and general torture. After highs and lows I have finally leveled off at a good point, though I am still muscular, and worry that judges might think I am still too meaty. I am competing for the first time in about 4 years next week, so we will see what happens!

    If any of you remember Jean Marc and Frans from Canada, it's proof you can be "less than the ideal" body type as long as your floor presence, body position, etc. are spot on. Having said that, I still eat around 1000 calories a day combined with crazy amounts of exercise to maintain a 4/6 size. I guess I just got used to it, but I know some people find my eating and exercise habits excessive. How do you explain that I am normal sized for regular life while being "dance fat?" LOL. You gotta laugh!

    1000 caloriesa day combined with crazy amounts of exercise only to be considered fat as a 4/6 would be insane....sigh...and it doesn't make me laugh

    Welcome to the DF, Kelly Long. Jean Marc and France are friends, and they are tops! I remember when she singularly changed the way latin is danced (stylized).

    Sorry for the hi-jack, guys. OK, back to the topic of fat. :)
