In brief: Very Typical

Being the father of two dancers, both of whom danced on college teams, I can tell you dance is a very demanding sport.
With all the leaps, spins and footwork injuries are common. I have seen everything from broken toes, dislocated shoulders to broken legs. One of my daughters has had both knees operated on. Dancing is not for sissies!
