IADMS Regional Meeting

South Africa

Sunday, July 22, 2018 - Johannesburg

Sunday, July 29, 2018 - Cape Town

The International Association for Dance Medicine & Science is proud to announce the FIRST regional meeting in SOUTH AFRICA and you are invited!

Times have changed; rethinking best practices for training the young dancers of today.

A Professional Development Day for Teachers of Dance

 This one-day course will share the latest research and opinions from IADMS and leaders in the dance science field on how we can make a difference for our young dancers. Teachers need to be equipped with the latest knowledge of injury prevention, conditioning, nutrition, and mental training for high performance. Using some of the tools first developed for Olympic sports training and now researched in specific for the dance environment, teachers can create healthier, more resilient, and exceptional dancers. The day will provide practical applications and information on the latest science for dancers with workshops and interactive lectures together with thoughts on how to integrate this in your teaching and classes.  

Learning Outcomes

Participants will gain knowledge and understanding of:

  • How to integrate the latest dance science regarding stance, posture, alignment, and flexibility of the young dancer into the dance class.
  • The relationship between strong technique, posture, and placement.
  • The psychology of today’s young dancer.
  • The increasing demands and challenges on our young dancers and how we can best equip them for both, physically & mentally.
  • The relationship between early focus on achievement and injuries being observed in young dancers.
