Students who enter the concentration program undergo an extensive screening process known as the Dancer Wellness Project. Through this screening dance science students and faculty work closely with the graduate students and faculty in the Athletic Training Program to assess the dancers strengths and weaknesses. This testing enable students to learn about the areas of the body they need to work on as well as give information to the faculty about the overall structure of the student’s body. This gives us information for students and faculty to work within a students structure in a safe way to gain a strong technique in dance.
