September Dancer Newsletter

If you missed our first dancer newsletter you can sign-up for this quarterly newsletter under “Contact us” -> “Newsletters.”  This newsletter will share tips and information for dancers, parents, instructors and dance studios.  We hope you’ll pass it on to anyone who might be interested in getting more dancer-specific information.  Here are the highlights from the September issue:

Pre – Class Warm – up in 8-Minutes or Less

This video shows an eight-minute, full body warm up that is appropriate before class to prepare you for dancing.  Afterward, you can stretch and spend extra time warming up any injured area(s).

I presented this warm up at three local dance studios.  If you would like me to speak with your dancers about warming up, injury prevention, or muscle identification, please email the office at to schedule a time for me to come to your studio.

Click HERE to see this and other L A R Physical Therapy videos on YouTube.

If you have have questions or want more ideas for how to warm up before class, give L A R Physical Therapy a call to schedule an appointment.  We offer many services for dancers.  More information about dancer assessments can be found HERE on the website.

IADMS Conference in Seattle, Washington

The International Association of Dance Medicine and Science (IADMS) will hold their 23rd Annual Meeting October 17 – 20, 2013, in Seattle, Washington. The mission of IADMS is to enhance the health, well-being, training, and performance of dancers by cultivating educational, medical, and scientific excellence.
I have been a member of IADMS since 2000, and have presented multiple papers at their annual conferences over the years.   This fall, I will be attending the conference again, so watch for a future dancer newsletter to see what I found interesting this year.
Additionally, a wealth of information that can be found on their website:
