Both Kimberley and Michael were fortunate to learn from Eric Franklin personally when he delivered workshops during their training at The Royal Ballet School. 

This book comes highly recommended by Kimberley and Michael Berkin, who are keen advocates of incorporating the use of imagery within their dance teaching. This book would benefit dance students, teachers and professional dancers; it is an excellent read from cover to cover and a great point of reference too. 

Michael Berkin's Choice Of Boys Ballet Tights
Michael's choice! 
"I personally benefited a great deal from the use of imagery as a dance student after learning from Eric Franklin. Imagery in dance was something that I used throughout my performing career and continue to incorporate in my teaching today."

 

In the author's own words, 

"Renowned master teacher Eric Franklin has thoroughly updated his classic text, Dance Imagery for Technique and Performance, providing dancers and dance educators with a deep understanding of how they can use imagery to improve their dancing and artistic expression in class and in performance.

These features are new to this edition:

 

  • Two chapters include background, history, theory, and uses of imagery.
  • 294 exercises offer dancers and dance educators greater opportunities to experience how imagery can enhance technique and performance.
  • 133 illustrations facilitate the use of imagery to improve technique, artistic expression, and performance.
  • Four exercises taught by Franklin and available on HK’s website help dancers with essential rest and relaxation techniques.


Franklin provides hundreds of imagery exercises to refine improvisation, technique, and choreography. The 295 illustrations cover the major topics in the book, showing exercises to use in technique, artistic expression, and performance. In addition, Franklin supplies imagery exercises that can restore and regenerate the body through massage, touch, and stretching. And he offers guidance in using imagery to convey information about a dancer’s steps and to clarify the intent and content of movement.

In this new edition of Dance Imagery for Technique and Performance, readers will learn how to combine technical expertise with imagery skills to enrich their performance, and they will discover methods they can use to explore how imagery connects with dance improvisation and technique.

Dance Imagery for Technique and Performance uses improvisation exercises to help readers investigate new inner landscapes to create and communicate various movement qualities, provides guidelines for applying imagery in the dance class, and helps dancers expand their repertoire of expressiveness in technique and performance across ballet, modern, and contemporary dance.

This expanded edition of Dance Imagery for Technique and Performance supplies imagery tools for enhancing or preparing for performance, and it introduces the importance of imagery in dancing and teaching dance. Franklin’s method of using imagery in dance is displayed throughout this lavishly illustrated book, and the research from scientific and dance literature that supports Franklin’s method is detailed.

The text, exercises, and illustrations make this book a practical resource for dancers and dance educators alike."

Feedback on Dance Imagery for Technique and Performance by Eric Franklin - 2nd Edition:

"The Franklin Metod has proved invaluable to our students at the Julliard School in NYC for the past several years. Learning how to use mental imagery and functional anatomy for dance augments our training program beautifully as it is clear, precise, and useful in every way for any dancer. The students have found it revelatory!"

Lawrence Rhodes, Director of the dance division, The Julliard School

"The Franklin Method is a comprehensive approach to movement and mental strategies. A must for all dance educators who wish to bring this art into the 21st century."

Anne Holme Jensen, Ballet mistress and former Royal Danish Ballet Dancer

"Being able to use mental imagery and mind-body techniques is a must for a dancer today. This book is a fantastic resource for any dancer who wants to improve his dance skills" 

Zvi Gotheiner, Ballet teacher and choreographer, New York City.
