In my years of teaching, I’ve seen many older dancers come to me with strained ligaments, tendonitis, knee, ankle injuries and back pain from continued dancing with pain caused by incorrect technique, alignment or just not resting when they should have. These injuries occurred when they were younger and follow them through their adult life, resulting in creaky knees, hip pain and back strain as they get older.
