Carolina Dancer Wellness is a non-profit organization that serves the dance community through specialized health and wellness services, educational programs, and research projects. 

 

Our mission is to deliver accessible, high-quality programs based on the latest developments in the field of dance medicine in our offices, on-site at studios or backstage, and through virtual meetings.

To support a comprehensive approach to the artist athletes we serve, we have established an interdisciplinary network of local healthcare professionals and community partners.

COVID-19 Updates

Everyone attending in-person appointments must wear a mask and fill out the COVID-19 Screening Form for every appointment that they attend.  This form will be emailed 4 hours before your appointment time.

Any dancer who has been in class or rehearsal with a dancer who has tested positive for the COVID-19 virus must obtain a negative test or be symptom-free for 14 days before they can attend in-person appointments.
