Dancer Health

Boston Dance Alliance’s inaugural Dancer Health Day was a huge success!


Sixty dancers from across our community participated in special screenings designed to keep them dancing their best.



Led by BDA Board Member Dr. Lauren Elson, who directs the Dance Medicine practice at Spaulding/Partners, this national program brought together experienced clinicians from Spaulding, Children’s Hospital, the MGH Institute of Health Professions, and private practice.



The 2017 BDA Dancer Health Day was made possible through Boston Dance Alliance’s partnerships with  Dance/USA Task Force on Dancer Health, and The Actors FundWe are so grateful to the clinicians who participated, the student volunteers from Bridgewater State who helped keep the busy day running smoothly, and the staff at the Dance Complex in Cambridge. Special thanks to Trader Joe’s for the snacks that kept everyone nourished on a long and busy day.
