dc.description.abstract Classical ballet is generally defined as a form of art although it has been found to be more physically demanding than most sports, perhaps due to its very precise technique that differs considerably from normal movement. Epidemiological studies investigating ballet injuries in other countries suggest that the incidence and prevalence of injuries among ballet dancers is high. However, no such studies had been conducted in South Africa. Consequently the purpose of this study was to determine the lifetime incidence and prevalence of ballet injuries in the greater Durban area, and to examine the association between certain individual factors and ballet injuries, in order to identify potential risk factors. en
