A Support Group for Injured Dancers
September 27, 2016

It can be very isolating for a dancer when she’s injured. She has to sit out classes and rehearsals, and the timetable for returning to dance is not always straightforward. To help remedy this, The Dancers’ Resource, a subset of The Actors Fund, is offering a free weekly support group for dancers recovering from injuries. The eight-week program begins this Thursday, September 29, and sessions will be held 11–12:30 pm at The Actors Fund headquarters in New York City.

The program is designed to help dancers handle the mental and emotional stress of being injured. Participants will engage in confidential open discussion led by a social worker and receive resources about coping strategies.
