A movement screening and follow-up wellness program can provide a basis for immediate and long term wellness and performance enhancement. 

By providing you with individual knowledge and awareness of potential, our goal is to help you enhance and elevate your dance practice, and to continue facilitating the conversation of dance health and wellness between students, performers, educators, and others. 

     GET STARTED TODAY!

WHY PARTICIPATE IN A WELLNESS PROGRAM?

  • Dance training programs alone are often insufficient in preparing for the demands of performance. 

  • Dance performance demand is on par with that of professional athletes, however patterns of reduced fitness levels and aerobic capacity exist in the dance population. 

  • Insufficient core strength and delayed activation patterns have been associated with low back and lower extremities injuries. 

  • More important than merely trunk strength and endurance, sensorimotor control is essential in attaining sufficient core stabilization during dynamic dance movements.
