ABSTRACT
There are few studies about the behavior of the back mobility in flamenco dancers, although in styles such as classical, it is known that these practices have a generous range of motion of the trunk. This study analyzes the hamstring extensibility in flamenco dancers, and its relationship to the biomechanics of the pelvic mobility. The Sit-and-reach Test (DD-P), Lumbo Sacral Angle (L-Hfx), and the Straight Leg Raising (EPR) have been used. Sixty six women have been studied, 33 Flamenco-Spanish dancers, and 33 who performed physical activity maintenance (control group). The average age of the dancers was 12.22 + 4.21 years, height 162 cm and weight 5.35 + 7.4 kg. Mean years of training dance was 15.48 + 4.25, and the average time spent on specialty was 4.27 + 8.84 years. In DD-P, the flamenco group manifested a greater extent than the control group (t = 8.7, p
