DIS-TANZ DIARY #16
Apr 21, 2021 in DIS-TANZ-SOLO
When I kicked off my project on sports science and dance earlier this year, it was clear to me that I wanted to do a wide-ranging survey within the professional dance community as a first move. I wanted to have a better understanding of how fellow dancers assess their current situation in regards to training and conditioning, preventative methods and awareness, and rehabilitation processes. My goal was to see to what extent my own views and observations coincide with those of other dancers, to create a better basis for deciding in which form I could most usefully apply my own learning, but also to create a pool of information for interested colleagues.
The survey ran from mid-January to the end of March. Once again, I sincerely thank all friends, colleagues and institutions who shared the call for participation with their own networks of dancers. I am insanely happy that together we managed to collect 469 responses and thus present fairly representative results.
So here is the analysis of my online survey. I hope it will be a useful basis for a lively exchange, many interesting discussions and exciting follow-up projects.
Since survey participants could of course skip questions that did not apply to them or that they did not want to answer, you will find the respective number of answers received below each question.
