About this Event

Please note this event is VIRTUAL ONLY. Find details below.

Harkness Center for Dance Injuries is proud to offer the Harkness Center Saturday Series of workshops led by our clinical staff, featuring various topics on dancer wellness and injury prevention. Most Saturday workshops take place in person at our physical therapy clinic. However in summer 2024, Saturday Series workshops will be offered virtually!

All members of the dance community are welcome (dancers under age 16 are strongly encouraged to attend with a parent/guardian*).

Our August 2024 workshop will be Nutrition for Dancers.

Dancers exert both physical and mental energy; maintaining energy levels and nutritional balance is vital to their well-being. In this workshop, we will explore basic nutritional facts, discuss energy balance, and relate these to overall health. We will also delve into the influence of nutrition on dance training, performance, injury prevention, and recovery.

Harkness Center for Dance Injuries athletic trainer Lauren McIntyre, ATC, provides backstage care to Broadway shows and dance companies as well as injury prevention assessments and educational lectures to the dance community.

*We strongly encourage participants under 16 years of age to attend with a parent/guardian. If a parent/guardian plans to drop off a minor, please make sure you have corresponded with the Harkness Center in advance.

About the Harkness Center for Dance Injuries: NYU Langone's Harkness Center for Dance Injuries (www.DanceInjury.org) is dedicated to enhancing the health and well-being of dance professionals by providing breakthrough approaches to injury prevention, medical treatment, education and training, and research. Founded in 1989 through a partnership between the Harkness Foundation for Dance and the Hospital for Joint Diseases (now NYU Langone Orthopedic Hospital), the Harkness Center provides world-class clinical care for dancers of all types and levels. The scientific foundation for this expert care comes from research into understanding the dancer’s body in motion coupled with workplace requirements. The Harkness Center’s evidence-based practice has produced globally accepted approaches to the recognition, treatment, and prevention of dance injuries.

In addition to caring for injuries, an integral part of the Harkness Center’s mission is providing education. For the dance community, Harkness offers injury prevention workshops, online courses, and screenings, including its long-running, free Injury Prevention Assessment (IPA) program. For fellow dance medicine professionals, Harkness is actively engaged in sharing clinical best practices through academic training with live and online continuing education courses. Since 2015, Harkness Center has offered DanceMedU, its digital learning platform (www.DanceMedU.org), which now offers over 20 lectures on dance medicine and dancer health.
