      Objectives: To determine the prevalence and explore factors associated with ankle instability in contemporary dance students from Peru. Materials and methodology: A cross-sectional analytical study was conducted in four higher institutions of superior artistic training in contemporary dance. Dancers were recruited through a census. A self-report questionnaire of personal and medical records was applied. To assess ankle instability, we used the Identification of Functional Ankle Instability (IdFAI) questionnaire. We calculated 95% confidence intervals (95%CI) to estimate the prevalence of instability, associated factors were analyzed with prevalence ratios (PR) using Poisson regression models. Outcome: 125 participants, mean age 22,1 years, completed all the assessments. Among the, 90, 4% were women. 47,2% (95%CI= 38,2-56,3) had at least one unstable ankle. We found an association between previous injuries in the lower limbs and the presence of instability in the left ankle (PR=1,78; 95% CI=1,09-2,93). Conclusion: 47,2% of contemporary dancers had at least an unstable ankle. Furthermore, having a previous injury in the lower limb was associated with instability in the left ankle.
