The Jerwood Centre

Birmingham Royal Ballet’s pioneering Jerwood Centre for the Prevention & Treatment of Dance Injuries provide world-class support for dancers

Ballet is a physically demanding profession – but with the world-class support provided by the expert team at BRB’s Jerwood Centre, our dancers can achieve their performance potential while ensuring good health, well-being and quality of life after they leave the Company.

BRB’s Jerwood Centre strives to be a world leader in dance medicine and science, encompassing clinical service, education and research, and state-of-the-art medical and rehabilitation facilities. You can read more about our work on these pages.

Birmingham Royal Ballet is one of the founding partners of the National Institute of Dance, Medicine & Science (NIDMS), whose mission is to promote the development, implementation and dissemination of scientific knowledge and evidence-based practice centred on the promotion and optimisation of health, well-being and performance in dance through healthcare, research and education.

NIDMS currently has three healthcare centres in the UK: an NHS clinic based at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in London; and private specialist dance healthcare services offered by Laban Health in London and BRB’s very own Jerwood Centre in Birmingham.
