2018 Dancer Health Day
With generous sponsorship from Spaulding Outpatient Centers — Dance Medicine Program and under the leadership of BDA Board member Dr. Lauren Elson, director of the Spaulding Dance Medicine program, Boston Dance Alliance repeats last fall’s popular day of dancer wellness screenings!
This valuable national program brings together experienced clinicians from Spaulding Outpatient Centers Dance Medicine Program, Children’s Hospital, the MGH Institute of Health Professions, and private practice to flag medical issues and keep you dancing your best.
Get your questions answered and the referrals you need for physicians, physical therapists, alternative practitioners, and more.
Freelance professional dancers and very active recreational dancers are strongly encouraged to participate.
Space is limited and appointments early in the day are recommended. All exams are conducted clothed.
You do not have to participate in the BDA Open Call Audition, happening at the same time elsewhere at the Dance Complex, to participate in the Dancer Health Day screenings, but preregistration is strongly recommended. Suggested donation is $5 for BDA members, $15 for nonmembers.
