Honorary Member – Risa Steinberg

Spending one’s life being able to do what one is passionate about is a remarkable gift.
Being able to do it as a fully integrated individual who is well-tooled and therefore can make educated choices, is indispensable.

As dancers, the demands placed on our bodies and minds are rigorous and extensive. It is the responsibility of both the dance educator and the dancer to be as informed as possible on what dancer wellness entails. As our understanding of what is healthy is always developing and expanding, it is an organization such as IADMS that keeps the field timely. IADMS is dedicated to continually question, research and share new information. This charge helps a dancer evolve with clarity, confidence and, ultimately, is the support that all dancers deserve.
