In lieu of our annual conference, in 2019 Healthy Dancer Canada partnered with the International Association for Dance Medicine and Science (IADMS) in Montreal to present A Day for Teachers.
Here's what attendees have to say about our conferences:
"I have a greater understanding of the issues involved in maintaining dancer wellness, particularly in young dancers. I enjoyed seeing young dancers, experienced dancers, teachers, and healthcare professionals come together to network and discuss how to make dance better for everyone..." MARIEL
"Attending the Healthy Dancer Canada 2017 Conference was an absolutely amazing opportunity, filled with great conversation, networking opportunities, and professional development that I am immensely grateful for. The social time allowed me to connect with local health practitioners with a background in dance, while the lecture-style presentations and studio based time allowed for a comprehensive weekend full of learnings that I look forward to sharing with my colleagues..." VANESSA
