PERFORMANCE OPTIMISATION PACKAGE (POP) MEMBERSHIP
Dance UK has just launched an exciting new membership package. It includes everything normally included in Dance UK membership plus two additional elements specifically designed to help dancers maintain health, fitness and optimum performance.
The package has been designed to complement the existing specialist healthcare available at National Institute of Dance Medicine and Science (NIDMS) NHS clinics and will be invaluable for dance artists working independently or without comprehensive in-house health provision. Any individual dancer, teacher or choreographer can take out the package; companies and schools may also wish to add it to their existing offering for dancers.
