Dancers harmful relationship with pain.

"So how can we reverse this tendency? It starts in the studio. Teachers and choreographers can promote listening to your body, and taking time to heal. Dancers can do the same for their colleagues to encourage a healthier culture." https://www.dancemagazine.com/ignoring-injury-2632161352.html?rebelltitem=1#rebelltitem1

A phenomenal article from Dance Magazine on why dancers tend to ignore bad pain and continue dancing through it. From the financial burdens of injury to how it relates to the mentality of control, this is a great dive into why there is such an epidemic in our industry and what can be done to solve it.
