Dance News: The Dancers' Resource Support Group for Injured Dancers Resumes Weekly Sessions on September 14th, 2017 at The Actors Fund

Published on August 28, 2017

Weekly Thursday Sessions Run From September 14–November 16

The Dancers’ Resource’s support group for injured dancers will be resuming its weekly sessions on September 14. If you or anyone in your dance community is facing the physical and emotional challenges of healing from an injury or illness, refer to and pass along the following information:

This 10-week group was tailored for professional dancers who are dealing with or recovering from an injury. Through open discussion and the sharing of resources and healthy coping strategies, this group will provide a safe space for dancers to support one another at all stages of the healing process. As a program of The Dancers’ Resource, this group will reduce isolation caused by injury and help dancers navigate their changing relationships with their bodies and dance.

 

Dancers’ Resource social worker Catherine Drury will be leading the group and is seeking dancer participants to meet at 11:00 am–1:00 pm each Thursday starting September 14 and ending on November 16. All meetings will be at The Actors Fund, 729 Seventh Avenue on the 10th floor.

Please give Catherine a call at 212. 221.7300, ext. 166, or email cdrury@actorsfund.org to learn more about the group and to get started.

All services at The Actors Fund are free and confidential, so please spread the word to your friends and colleagues.
