The dance world is filled with technique books, which certainly serve an important role in helping dancers improve their performance. But the market has been conspicuously void of instruction on a vital aspect of dance performance: the mental aspect.
Dancers will build a strong foundation for performance by employing the dance-specific psychological strategies. The individualized program will help dancers reach their potential in artistry and excellence in school, the dance profession, and dance-related careers. The book comes with a companion web resource containing 40 worksheets that will help dancers grow mentally through reflection and self-examination. Dancers will be able to use these tools to refine their technique and overcome performance challenges.

What separates good dancers from the best dancers lies in how mentally prepared they are to perform their best, despite circumstances that dance and life throw at them, say Jim Taylor and Elena Estanol in their new book, Dance Psychology for Artistic and Performance Excellence. Taylor, an internationally recognized authority on the psychology of performance in business and sport, and who has also worked with the likes of Miami City Ballet, and Estanol, a dancer, instructor, and sport and dance psychologist, bring their experience and knowledge to a volume designed to help dancers of all levels develop psychological strength to maximise their performance.
Notably, however, peer-reviewed publications relating to psychology with tactical populations (i.e., encompassing emergency services and military) are sparse. In a recent systematic review of mental qualities and techniques in tactical populations, only 49 articles out of 7,220 potentially relevant publications met the inclusion criteria and specifically addressed the stated target (Raabe et al., 2021). In this paper specifically, the military population was regarded as one group, and distinct research focused on SOF was not mentioned. Based on our experience we would suggest that the special nature of SOF missions means that, as a group, they need specific research and implementation. In short, while the need for SOF theory underpinned by high-quality research is clearly stated and understood (Spencer, 2017) as yet, with the SOF community as its primary focus, the field of performance psychology requires further development.
This course is an in-depth exploration of selected aspects of the theories of sport psychology along with applications of these theories to other performance domains. An advanced understanding of the field of sport and performance psychology is pursued in relation to psychosocial aspects involved in both the preparation and performance processes among adults, youth, and children who represent all skill levels. The explored areas include: (a) motivation, confidence, and anxiety in sport and performance, (b) selected topics in social psychology and psychobiology, (c) psychological skills training, and (d) special topics (e.g., personality, flow, injuries, burnout).
This course is designed to familiarize students with theories of performance excellence developed by leading practitioners. Each week, students are exposed to a different practitioner's approach, which often includes an opportunity to observe the practitioner's style through video. Emphasis is placed on the role of theory in practice, theory-based conceptualizations utilizing a case study format, and comparing and contrasting the different theories.
This course is designed to familiarize students with the application of sport and performance psychology interventions. Students experience the building of a sport and performance psychology program. This program includes the cardinal skills of relaxation, concentration, imagery, self-talk, and mental routine; followed by broader topics such as goal setting, motivation, confidence, cohesion, engagement, and mastery. The instructor briefly reviews relevant theory and research followed by demonstrations of techniques and strategies, after which students learn by doing. Specific attention is given to blending the science of peak performance with the art of applying science.
