Of course you can have SCD-related accidents, as with any physical
activity! I've had 2 accidents involving other dancers (one very minor
and one which had the GP completely baffled, I think he'd never heard of
anyone twisting their instep!) and one injury which just happened
without any external factor. I also know several people who have had one
or the other, resulting in sprains, pulled muscles, partial or full
tears between calf muscle and Achilles tendon... oh, and only a couple
of weeks ago a dance in Edinburgh had to be cancelled because the floor
was so slippery that a gentleman fell and gave himself a nasty bang on
the head.

I guess most people on the list can come up with similar stories...
