Leah Alberson is a licensed physical therapist and board-certified Orthopedic Clinical Specialist.  She has trained in a variety of dance styles, including ballet, jazz, contemporary, and hip hop, since 2000.  Additionally, she has experience with dance fitness classes, latin ballroom, tap, and gymnastics.  Leah has always had a dream to blend her two passions of dance and physical therapy, and over the past few months has established Allegro Physical Therapy, a physical therapy clinic offering services to dancers and other performing artists.

This FREE, informational seminar is for parents, instructors, and dancers.  Topics can include:  optimal technique for basic dance postures, positions, and movements; age and maturity as factors in dancer health.  Additionally, information on common dance injuries specific to the ankle, knee and hip will be presented, and what to do in the event of an injury will be discussed.  Additionally, injury prevention tips will be covered for the promotion of safety of our dancers.
