You are in the right place…

Titanium Dance Wellness, launched in 2017, as the ‘go to’ resource for dancers and those teaching and caring for them. My mission is to educate and empower you, the dancer, to perform at your best. To prevent dance injuries from ending your amazing future career In dance. And to bring current dance science research to you in an easy to understand and applicable way.
As a Dancer, I know the devastating reality of an injury both minor and major. Dancers tend to fight through the pain and ignore minor aches and pains. I was no different.
But eventually, this caught up with me. My minor ‘shin’ pain was really bilateral tibial stress fractures. The ‘dreaded black line” across both of my legs.
To save you the details…. this was beyond devastating but I survived – literally. You can read more about my injury here.
As I entered the studio “recovered” over 3 years later with TITANIUM rods in both my legs, I vowed to use my experience as a spring board into the world of dance science and medicine and become the resource for young dancers that I never had.
So welcome to TITANIUM – a Dance Science resource to help you, the dancer, perform at your best by harnessing the powers of science.
