Scoliosis and Dancers is an introductory course to bring awareness of scoliosis to the dance community. Scoliosis is a complex three-dimensional deformity of the spine. Studies have indicated that up to 30% of dancers tested have scoliosis, yet the issues associated with scoliosis are rarely addressed in the dance world. The demands of dance require an extreme range of movement, placing more stress on a body that is already challenged structurally.

Understanding the inherent structural and muscular imbalances of scoliosis is imperative for medical professionals, teachers, and dancers with scoliosis to make effective choices and create strategies for the life-long management of scoliosis. Scoliosis and Dancers provides scoliosis-specific exercises with dance-specific cues to build a foundation of core control with neuromuscular integration necessary to combat the compensatory patterns caused by scoliosis.

We are proud to know Suzanne, and privileged that she has been with us as an Authorized Scolio-Pilates Practitioner since 2013 and a Principal Educator since 2018. Thank you, Suzanne!
