In the literature, there are few researches on the biomechanics of ballet. The aim of this study was to compare the kinematic and dynamic data of 2 professional ballet dancers (1 male, 1 female) , to analyse gender differences in the grand jetè performance. The data (ground reaction forces, lower limb angles and centre of mass trajectory in 3 jumps for each dancer) were collected through a 3D analysis system (Smart-D, BTS Engineering, Milano). The grand jetè technique was similar and standardized in both the dancers. The only differences were due to technical errors or personal interpretation. This study can be useful to identify the errors and to define a technical model of the grand jetè. Further studies using wider samples of dancers are needed to allow a generalization of the present results.

Abstract

In the literature, there are few researches on the biomechanics of ballet. The aim of this study was to compare the kinematic and dynamic data of 2 professional ballet dancers (1 male, 1 female) , to analyse gender differences in the grand jetè performance. The data (ground reaction forces, lower limb angles and centre of mass trajectory in 3 jumps for each dancer) were collected through a 3D analysis system (Smart-D, BTS Engineering, Milano). The grand jetè technique was similar and standardized in both the dancers. The only differences were due to technical errors or personal interpretation. This study can be useful to identify the errors and to define a technical model of the grand jetè. Further studies using wider samples of dancers are needed to allow a generalization of the present results.
