WHAT IS MARCHING HEALTH?
Marching Health is the global leader in providing health and wellness information to the marching arts community.
Marching Health was founded by physical therapist Dr. Elliot Cleveland, DPT, a former DCI and WGI World Class Finalist. While Dr. Cleveland was teaching the drumline at Wando High School he noticed an alarmingly high number of students having to sit out during rehearsals due to nagging injuries or poor physical conditioning. The students also struggled to have the endurance required to perform their show at full capacity.
This led him to create a marching-specific fitness program and health education curriculum to teach educators and students how to properly prepare for their seasons. These programs have served ensembles across the world, and have been adapted for drum corps and winter ensembles as well. Thank you for joining us on our journey to make the marching arts a healthier and safer activity!
