Dance Cross Training for Football Athletes is a video presentation created by Tenille Dellinger at Western Michigan University. This video explores the similarities of dance training and football training. In essence, it is designed to persuade the audience (football coaches) to include dance training in their daily workout regimen. The project details both the physical and health benefits of dance training and also relates stories about past and current National Football League players who have trained in dance and reaped the benefits of this cross training. The purpose of the video also is to encourage football coaches to consider hiring a dance professional to train their athletes in dance techniques, thereby giving their team a competitive advantage.
