Dance Strengthening & Rehab
What is it?
With the intense training dancers both competitive and recreational do regularly, it is no surprise that they are at risk of many overuse and traumatic injuries. Some of the most common affected areas are ankles, knees, hips, low back and, for the acro dancers, the shoulders. A few common conditions are hamstring and hip flexor strains, ankle sprains, ACL + MCL sprains, and mechanical low back pain.
Strength on Points goal is to supplement traditional dance training by offering guidance on proper warm ups, conditioning and strength training.
