IADMS Annual Conference Seattle 2013

IADMS Annual Conference Seattle 2013

Julian and Celia attended the 2013 Seattle IADMS Conference, Julian presented a research paper on easy ways to measure bone density whilst Celia was gathering endorsement from across the dance world, internationally, and raising the charites profile.

Every trip is self funded and maned entirly by unpaid volunteers which preserves all charity funds to help injured dancers access medical care.

We were fortunate to be given a stall from which to promote the charity and we had many useful conversations with dancers and dance scientists. The aim was to raise awareness more than raise money, which was successful judging from the comments we recieved.

One very useful outcome was that we met Lana Ashton who was presenting a paper this year on supplemental conditioning training for hypermobile dancers. After speaking with us she was inspired to volunteer with the charity. Another great development from attending the conference.
