IADMS 2018 Helsinki: Interview with Invited Speaker - Carolina Baeza

Posted By IADMS Promotion Committee, Monday, September 10, 2018


1. Could you tell us about your presentation theme at the 28th IADMS Annual Conference (#IADMS2018)? 


My presentation will focus on psychological/psychiatric aspects associated to joint hypermobility and hypermobility related disorders.


2. Why is it import to discuss this topic with the IADMS community? What are the implications of this topic to the dance sector/dance health professionals?   


Joint hypermobility is very common among performance artists and athletes, which is logical since the flexibility inherent to hypermobility is desirable in these disciplines. Being hypermobile can even become a criterion of selection to enter to certain prestigious ballets for example, as some studies suggest, so it has a very advantageous aspect. However, the counterpart is that there is a vulnerability not only physical, but also psychological associated with hypermobility, of which we must be aware for preventive purposes.


3. What are your thoughts on IADMS relevance for your field of work?


I think it is relevant because IADMS contributes to giving visibility to our work and will surely stimulate new research ideas. There is much to be done concerning mind-body connections in the field of dance.


4. Personally, what is the importance of attending to IADMS annual conferences?


This will be my first time in a IADMS conference, and I’m very excited and honored to be invited. I think this can be an experience that can open new perspectives to my line of research, and extend my networks as well.


5. What do you think you are most looking forward to on this year’s conference?


The program is very attractive, I’m sure that there a lot to learn and exchange in the conference. Also, this is a good occasion to visit Helsinki since I’ve never been there so I’m doubly motivated to attend.
