About the Screening Project

Summary

The screening assessment IS:

  • A quick screen designed to find “red flags”
  • Performed by health care professionals trained to administer the tests
  • An opportunity for dancers to meet the health care team
  • A source for individual referrals, recommendations and individualized preventative exercise programs
  • A living document that changes regularly based on experience and the most recent research

The screening is NOT:

  • A comprehensive physical evaluation
  • Meant for students or non-professional dancers
  • A research tool
