  1. I think Joseph Gatti's company sounds very innovative. My daughter has danced for two companies that had no PT, no gym and no union limiting their amount of dancing. One, grant it, was in Europe, but it was a national company in the country. Any time someone got hurt they sent them to the massage therapist. Didn't help labral tears. Also danced with a smaller company in the states with no access to PT, no gym, no anything. The two bigger companies she danced with in the US had a PT, but they danced 8 hours a day and then had to find time to schedule and go to the PT. Incorporating these things into the work day would be wonderful for these dances who try to dance hurt because they don't have time to rehab or are afraid of letting their AD know they are hurt for fear of losing parts. Kudos to Joseph Gatti.
