dc.description.abstractDancers at the high school level are at high risk for injuries that could suspend or end their dance careers. This is due to a disparity of knowledge between experienced and novice dancers. With little existing research for this prevalent problem, I chose to research the best practices for injury prevention in for these dancers. I did this by conducting a literary review of existing research, utilizing lecture courses from the Harkness Center for Dance Injuries, attending a summer dance intensive, and discussing injury policies with current high school dance directors. Although there is no quick way to test the results of this on young dancers, spreading this information throughout the dance community can set change in motion.
