Summer Programs 2019
The injury clinic, led by Physical Therapist Sara Talbot and assisted by future Physical Therapist Sabrita Cohen, is a week-long program designed to educate dancers about how to take care of their bodies. Dancers will learn about common dance injuries and their causes, practice exercises to maintain proper alignment and muscle function, and receive individual assessments of their own susceptibility to injury.
As former ballet dancers, Sara and Sabrita have a wealth of knowledge not just about the human body, but about how it is used in dance - an area of expertise most medical professionals do not have.
