  4. Do consistent active recovery

Common causes of dance injuries

Dance injuries are typically chronic injuries. These are injuries that happen over time or have lasted for a long time. Here are a few common causes of chronic dance injuries.

Too much point work without recovery. Being on point too much without giving your feet and calves recovery will cause ankle and calf injuries.

Lots of kicking with poor turnout or hip flexor training. Doing this will cause hip pain over time.

Our coach can help prevent all of these injuries or help resolve them quickly through our specialized training. To learn more call us or book a free fitness eval.

Dance nutrition tips

  • Drink more water! On heavy training days you should be drinking at least 12 cups throughout the day.
  • Balance your macros. Make sure you are getting the proper amount of protein, carbs, and fats every day.
  • Eat enough to fuel your body. Your body needs energy to perform well and stay healthy.
