Our 2016 Day of Dancer Health was a huge success! We would love to thank our volunteers and sponsors for making this year's event so great!
If you're a professional dancer based, here is an AWESOME and FREE opportunity for YOUR HEALTH. The event is open to all dance professionals in the Greater Los Angeles Area, offering a variety of resources for dance professionals including Dance/USA’s Task Force on Dancer Health preventative health screening assessment.
Some of what the day will entail:
Health Assessment (sign-up required)
Dancers move through a series stations for a preventative physical health examination with PT and medical specialists. Some of the stations include: height and weight measurements, aerobic testing, hip rotation and flexibility. The dancer then receives a one-on-one assessment based on the information from the screening and s/he is provided appropriate local referrals with whom they can pursue ongoing medical attention and services should they choose to do so.
Information Tables & Workshops
Information tables will be manned by other health professionals focusing on other needs such as nutrition and emotional well-being. Since the event is taking place during the Affordable Care Act open enrollment period—in state through Covered California—The Actors Fund will be on hand to help attendees navigate through the various insurance options as well. Gain information about dancers health and enrollment the Affordable Care Act through Covered California.
