Dance Injury Prevention Screens


This screen is designed for student and recreational dancers at the intermediate level and above who average less than 15 hours of dance per week.  It focuses on the helping dancers develop safely for progress to the next stages of dancing.

This screen is an annual assessment that evaluates overall health, muscular strength, flexibility, core strength, balance, aerobic fitness, power endurance, and proper implementation of dance technique at a level appropriate to the dancer.  Like our pre-professional screen, this screen has a junior and a senior level screen to better track a dancer's growth and abilities from year to year.  This helps ensure proper development of a dancer and identify potential problem areas before they become injuries. 

After the assessment is completed, each dancer will receive a summary of the findings as well as a customized injury prevention program to address their individual needs.  

Each screen takes about 40 minutes to complete is administered by our dance medicine team.  Dancers should plan on wearing shorts, tights, or dancewear that allows their legs to be seen.

Since all information obtained by the screen is considered private health information and is protected by HIPAA, it will be shared only with the dancer.  This information is not shared with studio or dance company staff and will not influence casting decisions or class placement.

The cost of the screen is $45.  
Financial assistance is available upon request.
