2018 Boston Dance Alliance DANCER HEALTH DAY


Thank you to everyone who participated in the second annual Dancer Health Day! With partnership 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, BDA’s day of dancer wellness screenings offered dancers the information they need to keep dancing their best!






One participant described the most valuable aspect of the screenings as

Having specific feedback from a number of different experts on how I could improve my physical condition based on where I was at the time. I feel comforted in knowing that everything that was advised was specifically tailored to my body. It was truly inspiring and I am incredibly grateful to have had this opportunity. Thank you all so much!


Boston Dance Alliance Dancer Health Day was conducted in partnership with  Dance/USA Task Force on Dancer Health and is also made possible in part by donations to The Joe Gifford Fund, which supports BDA’s Annual Dancer Health Day and other dancer wellness initiatives in memory of a man who lived life to its fullest.
