Accident Compensation Corporation says Dancing with the Stars can cause a spike in dancing injury claims, because it encourages people to get back on the dance floor.

Dancing injuries cost ACC $7.5million last year.

Ballet caused the most injuries, with 427 claims. The majority of those were for ankle, knee and foot problems. Hip-hop dancers filed plenty of claims too. Ballroom dancing is not entirely safe either with 42 claims, and some for neck and head injuries.

But twerking has caused only a handful of injuries – four in five years.

Just remember to stretch and warm up before you hit the d-floor guys!
