Have you thought about the similarities between sports and the performing arts? The website Athletes and the Arts is dedicated to providing up to date information, studies, and resources to performing artists based on those similarities in sports medicine. It’s mission “integrating the science of sport and the performing arts for the benefit of both” says it all.
Exercise science is funded rather lavishly in comparison to funding in performing arts. One of the purposes of the website is to share the abundance of exercise expertise with performing artists to promote health and wellness, learning from all the available research and practices available to athletes.
