Description

Dancers use the act of changing their body position in relationship to space to create art. Without muscles, dancing, creating, and expressing themselves would be impossible. Which is why taking care of their muscles is extremely important to dancers. Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS) is one of the most common muscular injuries for dancers but can threaten a dancer’s career. Determining methods that can minimize DOMS can help dancers avoid further serious injury. This study will look at implementing the Repeated Bout Effect (RBE) to a dancer specific environment.
