dancerbabe82 Posted May 13, 2012 Share Posted May 13, 2012 I'm starting a new thread because this topic got discussed on a different one which was not the correct intention. There appears to be a climate of belief among dancers that not only is it inevitable to dance through an injury but that it should be celebrated or praised. Other things that still perpetuate through are things like dancers should be rehearsing non stop right up until a show/exam/competition in order to be brilliant. I feel really strongly that until people stop believing these things, and stop telling our young dancers these things, that dancers will not get happier or healthier - and they deserve to be as healthy as any other professional. The advent of the discussion of eating disorders in dance, and the launch of the national institute NHS dance injury service is all brilliant but sadly, until people make changes to beliefs, our dancers are going to keep getting injured, way more than they need to. I'd love to know peoples feelings on the matter..... 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
