I was stopped in my digital tracks when I read the article on The Dance Current about dancers and concussion injury.
Recently I've talked to two people who saw the movie "Concussion:" with Will Smith. One loved it and the other didn't like it. But it is an important issue.
It's football. I get it. And casting Will Smith.
But what about dance? And concussion? I've worked in a chiropractic office, and yes, concussion IS a big deal.
I can't add anything to the movie trailer or the article in Dance Current.
Whether you are a ballet dancer, break dancer, ballet teacher, adult ballet beginner -- or a high school football player, I hope you'll read this article and expand your awareness.
I searched "ballet concussions" and came up with nothing. But please don't let that discourage you from thinking about this.
