Can Ballet help us age better? (Interdisciplinary Mini Sabbatical)
1st February 2013 - 14 June 2013
Collaborators: Khim Horton (Health and Social Care), Jennifer Jackson (Arts), Aliah Shaheen (Mechanical Engineering Sciences)
There is a recent move towards the employment of dance techniques to improve the interaction of older people with their environments and reduce risks of injury. Ballet is believed to improve spatial awareness, posture, movement coordination and proprioception; and could be used to inform rehabilitation of older people. However, it is not yet known whether the skills gained from ballet training translate when performing functional activities of daily living, and the effects of ageing on movement and stability parameters are also not well understood. The study aims to understand the effect of ballet dance and ageing on movement and stability.
