Abstract

 

This presentation will introduce, and hopefully expand the practice of, non-dance specific athletic trainer's toolkit when working with a performing artist, specifically a dancer. A review of current literature and research trends will be discussed along with relevant terminology and the differences between the athlete and artist-athlete explained.

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Associate dance-specific terminology with clinical observations with the dancer

  • Recall and assess common injuries in a dance population

  • Summarize several cultural aspects of performing arts and understand how those effect the patient-clinician relationship
