Today we have the brilliant Richelle "Ricki" Stevenson, founder of the Barre and Beyond, joining us! Ricki and her research team are looking at injury prevention and how we define "injury." Their goal is to ultimately bridge the gap between artistic leadership, dancers, and medical providers.
Ricki shares with us:
- The importance of symbiotic cross-training.
- Ways to navigate the nuanced conversation of pain vs discomfort.
- How readily available medical access is changing the overall trajectory and longevity of dance careers.
...and so much more! Richelle
If you are a dancer, dance medical provider, or otherwise work with dancers, email Ricki to see how you might be able to help her and her research team. You can find her contact info at her social media pages and Linktree in the section below.
Don't forget to leave us a review on Apple Podcasts.
