The Dance Again Foundation Helping Dancers Access Dance Medicine
The Dance Again Foundation Helping Dancers Access Dance Medicine

Our Changing Focus

Since the Dance Again Foundation has been established, we have helped over 1500 dancers access sports medicine treatment. We believe dancers' accessibility of medical care has improved, and so the charity is moving towards focusing on education provision.

Ankle impingement

Ankle impingement occurs when the tissues around the ankle get pinched.

It can be preceded by an ankle sprain but has lots of causes.

Anterior cruciate ligament injury (ACL)

The ACL is a stabilising ligament inside the knee which stops the tibia  sliding in front of the femur. ACL injuries can occur particularly with sudden twisting movements, for example landing from a jump onto one leg.
