Every year, more than 500 medical practitioners and scientists dedicated to the support and care of dancers gather for the International Association of Dance Medicine & Science conference. As part of this year’s event held in Columbus, Ohio, Dance Media and Harlequin Floors sponsored a panel discussion with world-renowned experts on the biggest concerns they see regarding dancers’ physical health, according to a news article from Dance Magazine.
The interdisciplinary panel was facilitated by Dance Magazine contributing writer Kathleen McGuire.
The panel discussed a variety of topics including the advantage of sprung floors, creating trust and efficiency in medical care for dancers, preparing for safe performances, the importance of mental health when it comes to performances, and many other discussions.
