Dance-Science Partnership


Alberta Ballet is working in partnership with The University of Calgary (UCalgary) to highlight the science in the art of ballet.

This partnership offers resources and support to reduce injury and promote dancer health and wellness.

UCalgary, Alberta Ballet and the supporting clinical team at Momentum Health are exploring potential areas of research, including:

• Chronic fatigue and overtraining

• Differences in bone mineral density between dancers and other athletes

• Socio-cultural perspectives on dance


The objective: dancers who enjoy longer, healthier careers on stage!

With similar missions to be key players in the city and province’s evolving cultural landscape, UCalgary and Alberta Ballet look forward to continue to inspire strong community partnerships!
