ABSTRACT
The article presents research on the determination of the significance and the association between bone characteristics and isometric strength in ballet dancers in Australia. Results of the study indicate the use of lower limb strength measurements as an alternative method for bone health evaluation, the characteristics and prevention of bone diseases, and the strength of the lower limb of ballet students.
