Many people who have a real passion for dance find rewarding careers as dance teachers. All kinds of duties and tasks are involved with this particular job. Your main aim will be to provide dance classes for all those who wish to take part. These might focus on a range of different dance techniques or styles, or one or two in particular.
There is a possibility you could be injured while taking part in such classes. However, while dancing does carry a mild risk of injury, dancers are well-trained to avoid such things. You will naturally be quite fit and this too can help reduce the odds of injury.
Why might dance teacher injury compensation be paid out?
There are situations where dance teachers could be hurt when they did nothing to warrant the injury in the first place. Imagine for example they rent a building in which the classes take place. The landlord has a duty of care to make sure those in the building are safe and there are no issues with building safety. If the floors are uneven or potentially dangerous in some way, this may lead to an accident occurring.
Similarly if there are large mirrors that have been installed on the walls of the dance studio, and one of these falls off because it has not been properly attached with the right fixings, the injured person could make a claim against the installer. These are just a couple of examples but they give you an idea of how a claim might potentially be made.
Is it easy to find out more?
It doesn’t matter how severe (or not) your injuries are. Some injuries may render you unable to do your work as a dance teacher, at least for a while. This might cause you to lose money. Dance teacher injury compensation can take into account loss of earnings caused by your injury as well as the severity of the injury itself.
