The health screen is one of Dance USA’s Task Force initiatives to improve health care for the professional dancer (sign-up required):
Dancers move through a series stations for a preventative physical health examination with PT and medical specialists. Some of the stations include: height and weight measurements, aerobic testing, hip rotation and flexibility. You then receive a one-on-one assessment based on the information from the screening and are provided appropriate local referrals with whom they can pursue ongoing medical attention and services should they choose to do so.
