DanceNL is proud to present a free NL Moves workshop: Injury Prevention for Dancers with Tony Ingram.
Injury Prevention for Dancers is an interactive workshop designed to educate dancers on the fundamentals of injury prevention. Dancers are taught to apply principles and exercises through a combination of lecture and group participation.
Elements such as how to practice, exercise, warm up, and stretch safely and effectively will be reviewed. Information is based on the latest research from dance and sports science. With this knowledge, dancers will have the necessary information to enjoy a long, fulfilling dance career.
Tony Ingram will be leading this free workshop, produced by DanceNL in partnership with the Neighbourhood Dance Works’ 23rd Annual Festival of New Dance. All are welcome to participate, free of charge. Dancers should bring comfortable clothing that allows full range of motion, and comfortable footwear that would be appropriate for any type of exercise – no special equipment, clothing, or footwear is required. A sweater, hoodie, or long sleeve shirt will be useful.
