I have never known so much about my body. The apparition of bones and muscles heretofore unseen: the sternum, the sacral ala. Facets of the vertebrae, tibialis anterior. The plantar fascia and levator scapula. I wake in the night wondering about the deep clack from the acetabulum, the balance of tensions at the cervical. For only aesthetic purposes, I would like to to teach an anatomy lesson from the sculpted contours of a dancer's back.

What a wondrous instrument the body is. How unique. In each achievent and each injury, it is my enemy, my teacher and my friend.

How long can a body last?

agree with the anatomy lesson :)it's really cool what 206 bones can do when they come together...
