The performing arts are amazing. We tell beautiful stories. We forge connections and remind that we all are a part of the human experience.
However, we also know that there is always a price of physical stress we pay in pursuit of our passion. That body stress can be more than we can handle. Did you know that at any given time, 82% of all dancers are in pain? Not only that, but the statistical amount of performers that are willing to report pain or movement issues is extremely low, meaning very little warning that something is brewing. The eventuality is calling out of shows, stress over swings and understudies, workman's comp and medical expenses. . . A whole host of issues that could be avoided. What started as a small physical price becomes a large financial one.
Furthermore, our performers can give much better artistry when they aren't preoccupied with an unstable knee, overstressed voice, or migraine.
