5 Questions With…Gabriel Gonzales

Posted By IADMS Student Committee, Monday, February 13, 2017

This month’s featured member is our newest Student Committee member, Gabriel Gonzales of University of New Mexico. Gabriel is a pre-med student with an interest in dance medicine. His areas of interest include biochemistry, exercise science and dance (ballet).

-How did you first get interested in dance science/medicine?

My high school dance teacher doubled as my ballet teacher and my inspiration to pursue a career in dance medicine. Her knowledge of the human body astonished me, sparking my interest in learning about the human body and the ability it possesses in dance.

If you were not studying dance medicine/science, what would you be doing or what would your career be?

My alternative career would be a professional dancer, I love and respect the art immensely; but to study it with a scientific approach is my true goal.

-What are your plans after graduation?

After graduation, I plan on applying to medical schools with a focus in sports medicine, I also have plans to audition for ballet and modern dance companies.

-What would you say to a student thinking of joining IADMS?

Jump in! I would encourage students considering a career in sports wellness, dance, and dance science/medicine as students are exposed and continually kept up to date with the latest of dance research provided by well-established and respected members of the community.


-What made you apply to join the student committee?

My decision to apply to the IADMS student committee was clear when considering what I aspire to become in my future. Being a part of this committee grants the opportunity of sharing thoughts and gaining knowledge from professionals in the two fields I am interested in, dance and science.
