The journey includes Dr. Kilbournes creative and pioneering efforts in dance conditioning with the U.C.L.A.s mens basketball team under head coach Larry Brown, his tenure as the first full-time conditioning coach in the National Basketball Association for the 1982-84 Philadelphia Seventy-Sixers (1983 World Champions), his work with Olympic level figure skaters in the United States and Canada, his discoveries in the academic arena about play, dance, games, and sport, and his journey to the Canadian Arctic where he examined the importance of traditional Inuit games. Most recently Dr. John Ratey author of SPARK: The Revolutionary New Science of Exercise and the Brain said of Dr. Kilbournes writings, ...Your book touched me deeply and made me think that someone who got Moses and Julius to dance together must have had such a strong self-awareness and trust in your mission.... Of Johns work with basketball players Larry Brown said, Hes the best in what he does. The kids love him and have a lot of respect for his knowledge.
