While athletes in other endeavors have been studied for years, dance medicine is a relatively young field.
Our research division contributes to this growing branch of science to refine our knowledge of dancers and improve the quality of our services.
Injury Tracking in Pre-Professional Male Dancers
Our current research initiative is a data-gathering study investigating various factors contributing to dance injuries in pre-professional male dancers and seeking to identify trends. This analysis will ultimately be used to improve training strategies and develop injury prevention programs.
Future research includes projects that will look at visualization in dance training and will investigate relationships between injury rates and the adolescent growth spurt in young dancers.
