The author asserts that dance requires the Rolfer to learn to see a dynamic ‘Line’ (rather than rely on the classic, static ‘Line’ used in Rolfing® Structural Integration) as a marker to assess structural balance. Moreover, a dynamic ‘Line’ looks at more than structural alignment, taking into consideration balance, power, strength, transmission, symmetry and asymmetry, and the art and culture of the dance.
