Norwegian dance company Panta Rei Danseteater, late last year, conducted a little experiment whereby three dance makers created two pieces with the same name based on the same idea, featuring three male dancers and two musicians, to see what the outcome was.

DanceUK, the dance lobbying group, has taken a short step toward establishing 'The Dancers Health Pilot Scheme' with an £80,000 donation from the Jerwood Foundation in London.

The pilot project will provide 100 dancers with comprehensive health insurance as well as funding a small team of medical research specialist who will conduct a detailed study of dancers injuries and recovery over a two and a half year period.

Following the pilot project DanceUK hopes to set up a permanent "National Centre for Dance Health and Performance" to provide access, for dancers, to specialist medical care as well as health insurance, self referral to specialists and other resources.

DanceUK is currently the only dance orgnisation in the country that treats dancers medical care with any degree of seriousness.

£500,000 is needed to conduct the pilot project and if you want to make a personal donation then you can at the link below.

You can read more about the project on Article19 at the link below or by visiting DanceUK's website.
