The Healthier Dancer Programme Conference for 2015: Strength and Conditioning in Dance: Power, performance and rehabilitation was organised in response to calls from dancers, artistic directors and choreographers to revolutionise training and performance and improve dancers’ fitness and physical capacity using practices in elite and Olympic level sport. Dance as an art form is pushing both artistic and physiological boundaries. Throughout their training and careers, dancers must be prepared for the challenges of many styles, choreographic voices and physical demands.
