HARLEQUIN - Dance Injury Researcher Luke Hopper Thanks Harlequin For Support

Luke Hopper PhD, a Lecturer of exercise, musculoskeletal and clinical biometrics at The University of Notre Dame, Australia has extended his thanks and gratitude to a number of individuals who have supported his research including "the invaluable assistance of Harlequin throughout my doctoral candidature."

As an ex-dancer, Luke Hopper is well aware of the demands of dance training and the associated injury risks. Since finishing dance training, Luke studied sport science at the University of Western Australia and has recently completed his PhD investigating the effects of dance floors on dancers.

Thanking "[the] representatives of Harlequin who have accepted and supported my research with openness and generosity. Their input has provided a major contribution to my research and I am grateful for the respect they have given my scientific obligations. I hope that my findings will significantly aid our common goal of improving the health of dancers."

Group Marketing Manager, Mark Rasmussen responded, "I know I speak for everybody at Harlequin when I say that we are proud to be associated with Luke’s work." Mark continued, " Attending meetings at the IADMS conference and with other professionals dealing with dancer's health in the last year, one name kept coming up, Luke Hopper."

Luke explained at the outset of the research, "Dance floors are an integral part of the dance environment, yet little information is available for the dance community that concerns how dance floors may affect dancer performance and injury. For the dedicated dancer striving to improve, injury can sadly be an all too common occurrence. By gaining knowledge concerning the relationship between dance floors and dancer performance and injury, the dance environment can be optimized in order to give dancers the best opportunities in their training."

Harlequin has a long tradition of working closely with the dance community to develop ‘research-informed’ dance floors and is a major supporter of IADMS - International Association for Dance Medicine & Science - in addition to sponsoring previous and on-going research in the USA, UK and Europe into dancers’ health related to the quality of dance floors. Harlequin also recently pledged ¬£30,000 towards the creation of a National Institute of Dance Medicine and Science in the UK.
