Dance Injuries in Street Dance Forms: A Survey of Recent Literature and Discussion

The 3rd of 4 sessions of

Preparing for a New Season: Expanding Our Impact in Dance Medicine

A summer educational series for healthcare professionals and dance educators

Presenters: Ashley Houck, PT, DPT; Patricia Cavaleri, PT, DPT, OCS; Rebecca Kesting, PT, DPT, OCS

Harkness Center clinicians will share findings from a literature review of recent research on dance injuries in street dance, breaking, hip hop, and other related genres of dance that have historically been overlooked or omitted from the conversation about dance injury epidemiology, treatment, and prevention. In addition to sharing research findings, presenters will share clinical anecdotes and case studies. The goals of this workshop are both to present recent studies and findings as well as to cultivate questions for further research related to injury occurrence in urban dance forms, as well as ways dance medicine clinicians and dance educators can support and nurture healthy training practices for dancers specializing in these forms.
