1. Set-Up, Training, Execution, and Interpretation of Dance-Specific Movement: Technique Station Eight

Dance technique evaluation is a critical component of the screen. Faulty dance technique involving poor alignment/motor-control is frequently cited as a risk factor for injury. Because ballet is part of the core training of most modern dancers, we employ a ballet-based movement analysis.

2. Educating Your Dancers: The Post-Screen Workshop

Screening results can be communicated through individual review or group workshops. Remedial treatment recommendations can be made through these educational forums. Dancers are kinesthetic experiential learners. Learning how to interpret their screening scores within the group average and compared to professionals can be very powerful. Information about injury prevention can be incorporated into information about the screening results during this workshop.

3. Educating Your Dancers Continued: The Post-Screen Workshop

Pulling from the results of Stations 1-7, we instruct the dancers in what muscles are typically too tight and which are weak. An experiential workshop employing photographs, active learning, and handouts to take with them enhances the learning process.
