We all know that dancing can be hard on our knees and at times they are doing more work than they are designed for!
Dancers are continuously learning techniques that require time and practice to perfect.
Knee pads help protect the knees by providing support and padding for those occasions where a landing or slide is not performed to perfection.
Fit and active dancers don't have a lot of natural padding around their knees. This makes it more likely that there will be direct contact between the bones and floor (with only a thin layer of skin in between). Bones are sensitive structures meaning landings can become quite painful.
At Dance Wear International, we want our dancers to have long and rewarding careers. Many dance careers have been sadly cut short due to knee issues and if wearing knee pads can help prolong a dancers career then they are worth it!
