We know that a career in the performing arts can be physically and psychologically tough. Whether you’re on stage or behind the scenes, it takes a lot to keep the show on the road. BAPAM helps many people overcome health challenges that arise while they are working or studying in our industry.
Our free online Factsheets are designed to help you look after yourself and perform at your peak. They include advice about preparing for performance, from physical warm-ups to psychological self-care, coping with anxiety and challenging working conditions, caring for your voice, hearing, taking care of nutrition and alcohol consumption.
These materials are a developing resource, as we bring the expertise gained through our clinical practice and Trainer Network to focus on making key information available to all performing arts professionals and students. Look out for new BAPAM health resources throughout 2015 and please get in touch with Information Officer, Dan Hayhurst (firstname.lastname@example.org), with any comments and suggestions.
