Five Point Dancer Method At Magnify Dance Center with Melody Krech
Our global THYDP team came together because of the need we saw based on our collective experiences over many decades of working in the dance world artistically/medically/holistically. This website is our response to countless requests from dance students and parents/guardians to have a place where they can find a diverse selection of dance related experts. The services we all offer are in areas that support increasing the overall wellbeing of dancers mentally, physically and emotionally. Our work also empowers and educates young dancers about the importance of self-care practices and focuses on learning how to tune in and communicate their needs to their adult support system.
We all believe in the power of positive energy and it is our intention that by coming together we can have an even greater impact on our beloved world of dance. We know that through education there can be less mental and physical injuries, fewer eating disorders, and longer and safer careers... overall happier and healthier young dancers.
We are The Healthy Young Dancer Project!
