Cavidade Torácica

The course ANÁLISE FUNCIONAL NA PRÁTICA DO BALÉ was created to offer applied knowledge of biomechanics and kinesiology specifically to ballet teachers.

Developed by dancer and teacher Zélia Monteiro and by physiotherapist Elaine Ferrão, the course is meant as a complement to the formation of these teachers, who, even being very familiar with this language, often find themselves without resources to guide their students on how to execute the movements specific to this technique.


This gap in the teacher’s formation can get in the way of the technical progression of students. When establishing postures that overstrain the muscles, the teacher does not encourage the bodily availability that is necessary for the acquisition of technique, which can lead to lesions and create difficulties for the student when performing the highly complex movements required in ballet.

The partnership between Museu da Dança (MUD) and Centro de Estudos do Balé (CEB) has as its main goal to stimulate the constant improvement of dance professionals.

  • Practical lessons, with exercises of sensibilisation to improve awareness of bones, joints and their alignments, as well as muscle groups and their functions, followed by ballet practice while applying the previously acquired knowledge.

  • Analysis of muscle function through the body of a model (who may be a student)
