Safe Dance Report IV launched

Ausdance National and The University of Sydney have launched the results of the fourth Safe Dance research project—Safe Dance Report IV: investigating injuries in Australia’s professional dancers. The report examines the context and occurrence of injuries in Australia’s professional dancers and makes recommendations to support sustainable, healthy, and productive dancing careers. A lot has changed in the dance industry since we last investigated and reported on injuries in Australia’s professional dancers (18 years ago), and injury prevention and management is something taken seriously by dance teachers, directors and choreographers. However, the Safe Dance IV research found 97% of professional dancers experienced at least one significant injury in their dance career, compared with 89% in 1999. And 73% of dancers reported experiencing a dance-related injury in the past 12 months.
