The Importance Of Good Posture

Posture is especially important in dance because it can be part of the actual dance itself, especially of ballet dancers. They need to have a very kind of flat back and open chest, explains Cynthia Laportilla, Physical Therapist with Miami Orthopedics & Sports Medicine Institute. She explains ballet dancers need to dance and move in an alignment that would not be what physicians conserved to be organic, what the body would naturally do on its own. The specialist describes how good posture looks like.
