A balancing Elephant.

Balance, dexterity and coordination can of course be developed through practicing many different sports.

A great tennis player for example, will be applying the coordination principles to a high degree.

Less fit non-sport driven students will benefit just as well.

Heavy or awkwardly large items need moving with high levels of coordination to avoid injury.
