Spaulding Sponsors BDA’s 2018 Dance Health Day!

Boston Dance Alliance is delighted to announce that Spaulding Outpatient Centers – Dance Medicine Program has generously stepped forward as lead corporate sponsor for Boston Dance Alliance’s second annual Dancer Health Day on Sunday, September 16, 2018. We are very grateful!



The Dance Medicine Program at Spaulding is led by Boston Dance Alliance Board member Dr. Lauren Elson, herself a former professional dancer who continues to perform with Cambridge Dance Company, collaborating with a team of physical therapists who specialize in dance rehabilitation.

For BDA Dancer Health Day, Dr. Elson and Spaulding Dance Program coordinator Kester Cotton are bringing together talented dance medicine clinicians from the Spaulding Outpatient Centers Dance Medicine Program, Children’s Hospital Sports Medicine Division, the MGH Institute of Health Professions, and private practices across the community to provide  a day of wellness screenings for freelance professional and serious recreational dancers.

This special event is part of a national initiative led by the Dance/USA Task Force on Dancer Health to keep dancers performing their best. Space is limited, so register for your place now.
