From Dance UK’s Healthier Dancer Programme: **_“Long-term goal – our vision for the future is that all top level dancers will have access to the high quality, comprehensive, dance specific healthcare and dance science support services they need, on a par with those enjoyed by elite athletes and dancers in the largest ballet companies. It is envisaged that this could be achieved through shared expertise and a network of multidisciplinary hub-sites which will collectively form a National Institute of Dance Medicine and Science.”_
