Suzanne Scott
PhD Student


My background is in dance and movement training for health and performance. For the last 15 years I have worked as a movement coach in an interdisciplinary teamsport environment with a focus on football at academy and senior mens’ level. I am interested – both professionally and personally – in the movement characteristics of dancers and footballers and the links between these two athlete codes.

Broad research specialisms

My principal focus is the relationship between how movements are performed and the effects of performance (‘movement load’) within body tissues and systems. Within my thesis I have been studying the effects of a HIIT intervention I have developed that applies movements from football and dance in a programme for bone health. The populations I have studied are sedentary women, elite youth male footballers and elite male and female classically trained dancers.
