Feet First: Caring for the Dancer’s Foot
- Presenters: Fred Raynor/Brad Carpenter/Carla Michelin-Clarke, Applied Biomechanics and Heather Finn, Speed River Physiotherapy
As dancers we often train and dance barefoot, so the footwear we choose outside of dance is very important for foot mechanics, relative rest and recovery. In this workshop we will review foot anatomy and mechanics during walking, running and dancing, learn basic taping strategies to support our feet, and answer all your questions about feet, footwear and orthotics.
