Dancer Health


Boston Dance Alliance is proud to inaugurate BDA Dancer Health Day

 Sunday, September 17, 2017, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.



Recreational and professional dancers are invited to participate in a Dancer Wellness Screening in conjunction with BDA’s annual Open Call Audition. This screening takes place in Studio 7 at The Dance Complex, 536 Mass. Ave, in Central Square, Cambridge.

You do not have to participate in the Open Call Audition to take advantage of the Dancer Wellness Screening!


Led by BDA Board Member Dr. Lauren Elson, who directs the Dance Medicine practice at Spaulding/Partners, this national  program has been  tailored to the needs of the local dance community!


Learn about your own physical strengths and weaknesses, and receive immediate, personalized education about how to address your individual needs as a dancer.

Connect with local health professionals who specialize in dance medicine and treating dancers.

Help to pilot an assessment tool to collect information about dancer injuries across the country.


Register NOW.  Availability is limited, but some sign-ups may be available at the door.


Download and complete this confidential Medical History Questionnaire and bring the hardcopy with you. Doing this beforehand will help streamline the registration process.

There will be a table with information about other wellness resources that will keep you dancing your best.


This screening is free, but donations are strongly encouraged. $5 Boston Dance Alliance/StageSource members, $15 non-members.


Studio 7 in The Dance Complex is completely wheelchair accessible.

The BDA Dancer Wellness Day is made possible through Boston Dance Alliance’s partnerships with Spaulding Rehabilitation Network, MGH Institute of Health Professions, Dance/USA, and The Actors Fund.
