This post is dedicated to the dancers out there - are your ankles, feet and toes sore✖️?
Did you know chiropractors, physiotherapists and massage therapists can help with those pains?
I know how tough dance can be, especially how tough it can be on your body (sprains and strains 🙄 am I right?). Just a PSA so you remember to take care of yourself too, so you can do what you love to do 💃🏻
