It sure does in many ways. For the past 10 years, Michael J. Friesen has been an editor-in-chief for the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research. He teaches at the University of New England and also offers a nutrition consulting firm, which is called Nourish and has been listed by Fast Company as one of the top 25 best nutrition training companies in the world.

So in my teaching I will emphasize both the conditioning as well as, when you’re at training, working the dance movement with the dancers. And as you say, that’s a very interesting aspect of this study. If you’re a dance performer and you’ve spent a lot of time training in your own body, you know, you’ve got a lot of muscles that are in a very good shape. When you’re really in the same training as the group and the people that are performing, they have more than just a lot of muscle. They have lots of fat. So the muscles must
