Subject: Previous poster here - 100% agree, I meant my comment in general, rather than a specific WIDA vs CLRG thing. My comment about the WIDA founder still stands though.
In reply to: Parent 's message, "CLRG parent here. I agree with what you are saying, however, I would say that most CLRG teachers have no qualifications with regards to physical therapy/injury prevention etc. Many CLRG dancers get injured and suffer from overuse injuries, I know several who have needed surgery to repair damage caused by dance injuries. CLRG teachers have passed an exam which tests only their knowledge of dance steps and music, nothing more and have no more knowledge of injury prevention than any other unqualified person in the street. Fully support CLRG TC's but just wanted to make that point." on Wed, Dec 26 2018, 11:08:06"

  • I have a question: is your kids school teacher qualified to treat sicknesses and injuries? Do you expect that all school teachers are First Aid qualified? As far as I know the school admin is calling to go and pick up your kid when sick or in emergencies they will call an ambulance. So exactly why a CLRG teacher should be ‘injury qualified’ and what this has to do with anyone’s decision to select anyother dancing organisation??? (NT) -- Curious Mind, Wed, Jan 02 2019, 23:56:55"
  • Not that it is any way relevant but school teachers are trained in first aid. I would absolutely expect a sports coach to be trained in injury prevention. Competitive Irish dance is a sport and the teachers are the coaches. (NT) -- X, Thu, Jan 03 2019, 17:14:25"
