Safety & Health

The A Time To Dance Faculty members and guests attending Lisa Howell’s Dance Teacher Workshop at the ATTD studios.

Safety and Health

Our dancer’s health is a top priority. A large part of our teaching philosophy and curriculum involves teaching the students about their bodies and its health through anatomy, our Complete Dancer Series classes*, Healthy You Lecture Series**, as well as incorporating strengthening, proprioceptive and stretching exercises in class appropriate to each level.


*Complete Dancer Series Classes include:

            Anatomy for the Dancer


            Improving Flexibility

            Understanding and Strengthening Turnout

            Foot and Core Control


            **Healthy You Lecture Series

As part of our educational philosophy, the ATTD faculty partners with parents, students and health care providers to instill healthy and balanced habits in our students.

Dance is an athletic endeavor that requires knowledge and support for a healthy body. These lectures are designed to educate and encourage both parents and students in important areas related to the dance field, a growing dancer’s body, and to answer questions about the school and the training the students are receiving.

Topics have included:

            Nutrition for the Dancer


    Injury Prevention

    Psychology in Dance
