Is hypermobility an advantage or disadvantage for singers? I’ve been learning a lot of interesting things about performers and medical issues on the Performing Arts Medicine MSc program at UCL. One topic which piqued my interest and gave me an ah-ha moment was that of hypermobility aka double-jointedness. This condition can be an advantage for some performing artist but if you are a singer and have it in your larynx that could be a disaster. Here is my vlog with me pondering the subject. Feel free to make comments or give feedback on my theories in the video comments.
