- Wide hips and narrow shoulders
- Fairly slim wrists and ankles
- Very little muscle or body fat
- Narrow hips and shoulders

All performers are made up of these 3 extreme body types/somatotypes
Most people have a mixture of mesomorphic, endomorphic and ectomorphic characteristics
A person's somatotype can be graded using a scoring system....
A person is given 3 scores between 1 and 7 according to how well they conform to each of the extreme somatotypes
1 is a low score
7 is a high score
