Dancer Health Events

Following the pilot Day of Dancer Health organized by Dance Resource Center in 2015, the Dance/USA Task Force on Dancer Health is now partnering with local dance service organizations and local communities across the country to provide health screening events for dancers. These events include the Task Force’s standardized Health Care Screen, a preventative health screen from physical therapists and medical specialists.
