Dan Scheid is a strength and conditioning coach with the goal of helping all performers improve their physical capabilities to best assist artistic expression. Dan has an extensive performing arts background in drumline, marching band, and color guard. His focus is on developing fundamental movement capabilities required to be successful at every level of dance, and educating clients to take their knowledge to college and beyond. Co-Owner of Stage Fit by Moss, Dan oversees the long term athletic development of competitive team dancers and recreational dancers alike.
After working with the Department of Athletics at The University of Cincinnati as a sports science and athletic training manager, Dan saw the imbalance between the resources available to traditional athletes vs. performing artists. Dan uses his experience in athletics to bring up to date research and technology into the studio. He brings this knowledge into his training at Stage Fit by utilizing advanced exercise testing, injury risk assessment, and data driven performance science. Dancers work with Dan knowing they are receiving individualized, up to date, effective training methods in strength, neuromuscular awareness, endurance, and practical application to their craft.
Currently Dan is a Student Physical Therapist at The University of Cincinnati, pursuing his Doctorate of Physical Therapy (Class of 2023). He is a member of the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) and the Performing Arts Special Interests Group within the Academy of Orthopedics. In addition, Daniel is a member of the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA), certified as a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist and Certified Special Populations Specialist. Dan also enjoys working with adapted athletes and is the co-founder of Iron Core Adapted Strength and Conditioning.
