The principles of safe dance practice

Every dancer of every age, ability and style should be able to engage fully in the act of dancing and be encouraged to achieve their potential without risk of harm to body or mind.

Practical information on all aspects of safe practice that is not too simplistic or complex has not always been easy to find – but that is all about to change.

Safe Dance Practice takes a multidisciplinary approach to the components of dancing safely, integrating principles without compromising dancers’ artistic creativity and expression.

With nearly 60 years of collective experience in the dance profession, the authors translate extensive research and evidence-based practice in order to present the essential principles of safe practice.
