SAFETY PROTOCOLS IN DANCING
PEOPLE DANCE
FOR A VARIETY
OF REASONS:
FOR FUN
RECREATION
AND FOR
HEALTH.
DANCING IS A
GREAT WAY TO BE
MORE ACTIVE
AND OFFERS A
WIDE RANGE OF
PHYSICAL
AND
MENTAL
BENEFITS.
HOWEVER, THE
RANGE OF BODY
MOVEMENTS,
REPETITION AND
SPEED OF
MOVEMENT CAN
PUT YOU AT RISK.
DEHYDRATION
it occurs when you use or
lose more fluid than you
take in, and your body
doesn't have enough water
and other fluids to carry
out its normal functions.
WATER MAKES UP APPROXIMATELY 60% OF
BODY WEIGHT AND IS THE LARGEST
COMPONENT OF THE HUMAN BODY. THE
MUSCLES WE WORK SO HARD TO DEVELOP
AS DANCERS (SKELETAL MUSCLES) ARE
ABOUT 73% WATER, YOUR BLOOD IS
ABOUT 93% WATER AND EVEN BONES AND
TEETH CONTAIN SOME WATER.
WHY DO DANCERS NEED TO STAY
HYDRATED?
IT’S IMPORTANT FOR
DANCERS TO KNOW THAT
BEING PROPERLY
HYDRATED HELPS KEEP
THE BODY FROM
OVERHEATING. HELPING
THE BODY PROMOTE HEAT
LOSS WHEN DANCING
FULL OUT WILL IMPROVE
ATHLETIC PERFORMANCE
AND AID IN RECOVERY.
THIS IS ESPECIALLY IMPORTANT
FOR DANCERS WEARING HOT
COSTUMES AND PERFORMING
UNDER STAGE LIGHTS. SWEAT
LOSSES DURING PERFORMANCE
CAN BE SIGNIFICANTLY MORE
THAN DURING REHEARSAL OF
THE SAME PIECE. THIS IS WHY
DRINKING REGULARLY (EVEN
SMALL, REGULAR SIPS) IS AN
IMPORTANT HABIT DURING A
SHOW.
SYMPTOMS OF DEHYDRATION INCLUDE:
DIZZINESS
DRY MOUTH
EXTREME THIRST
FEELING FAINT OR LIGHTHEADED
LESS FREQUENT URINATION
TIREDNESS
WEAKNESS
OVEREXERTION
It occurs when people push themselves
too hard during physical activities like
Dancing
SIGNS OF OVEREXERTION INCLUDE:
• dizziness
• feeling faint
• lightheadedness
• nausea
• shortness of breath
• thirst
• vomiting
TO AVOID PHYSICAL OVEREXERTION:
= practice good posture
= utilize ergonomic workspaces
= lift lighter loads and use proper lifting techniques
= decrease the distance you must stretch to lift a heavy object
= take frequent breaks from physically repetitive and challenging
activities
include strength training and stretching in your regular exercise
routine

HYPERTHERMIA
refers to a group of heat-related
conditions characterized by an
abnormally high body temperature in
other words, the opposite of
hypothermia. The condition occurs
when the body's heat-regulation
system becomes overwhelmed by
outside factors, causing a person's
internal temperature to rise.
This stage of
hyperthermia causes:
•excessive sweating
•exhaustion
•flushed or red skin
•muscle cramps, spasm, and
pain
•headache or mild light-
headedness
•nausea
HEAT FATIGUE
• If long hours in high heat are causing
you physical discomfort and
psychological stress, you may be
dealing with heat fatigue. People who
aren’t used to extremely hot weather or
hot working conditions are especially
vulnerable to heat fatigue.
• In addition to simply feeling hot, thirsty,
and tired, you may have difficulty
concentrating on your work. You may
even lose coordination.
HEAT SYNCOPE
• Syncope, also known as fainting, occurs
when your blood pressure drops and
blood flow to the brain is temporarily
reduced.
• Fainting is often preceded by dizziness or
lightheadedness. You may feel close to
fainting, but if you relax and cool down
quickly, you may prevent actually losing
consciousness. Putting your legs up can
help.
HEAT CRAMPS
• Heat cramps usually follow
intense exertion or exercise in
the heat. They’re usually the
result of an electrolyte
imbalance and are typically
felt in the abdomen, leg, or
arm muscles.
HEAT EXHAUSTION
• Common to dancers
-This is one of the most serious stages of
hyperthermia. Heat exhaustion occurs when your body
can’t cool itself any more.
In addition to sweating profusely, you may experience:
• dizziness
• weakness
• thirst
• coordination issues
• trouble concentrating
• skin that’s cool and clammy
• rapid pulse
IF YOU’RE FEELING SIGNS OF HEAT STRESS, GET TO A COOLER
AREA AND REST. START DRINKING WATER OR OTHER FLUIDS
WITH ELECTROLYTES THAT WILL HELP RESTORE HYDRATION.
ELECTROLYTES ARE SUBSTANCES IN THE BODY, SUCH AS
HY
CALCIUM, SODIUM, AND POTASSIUM THAT KEEP YOU
DRATED. THEY HELP REGULATE YOUR HEART RATE, NERVE
FUNCTION, AND MUSCLE HEALTH.
