While visualizing the dancer's hip
in motion, the authors detected impingements using computer-assisted techniques.
Some studies may promote understanding of the role of the labrum in protecting the dancer's hip
during dance-specific movement.
Their results showed that extreme motion exposes the morphologically "normal" dancer's hip
to recurrent superior or posterosuperior femoral acetabular impingement and to joint subluxation.
The dancer's hips
will be put through their paces when he returns to the Floral Pavilion (where he appeared in Cabaret in 2009) this month with his autobiographical show Precious Little Sleep.
With the dancer's hips
as the "center of gravity," there was division and cohesion, paradoxically engaged at once: "Thus the flexibility and fluidity of black dancing arises from the division of the body at the pelvis, with the upper body playing against the lower much as individual dancers or singers playfully oppose themselves to the rest of the performing community" (98-99).
