Injuries are a serious risk to contemporary dancers. Consequently, previous research has suggested supplementary training practices, such as conditioning and somatics, as a way to prevent injuries and improve dancers’ body awareness (e.g., Allen, 2009; Franklin, 2004; Fortin & Girard, 2005)....

In recent years, both recreation scholars and practitioners began calling for a sectoral return to municipal recreation’s historical roots as a public good (e.g., Mahaffey, 2011; ISRC & CPRA, 2015; Cureton and Frisby, 2011; Smale and Reid, 2002; Taylor and Frisby, 2010). Blaming neoliberal...
