In the next year, we would like to add webinars to the benefits of being a member of HDC. In order to do so, we need your help! We need 5-10 members to participate in a test webinar. This will help us verify the technology available and check for connectivity stability. For the occasion, we will have a free webinar, "Hip Anatomy and Turnout Muscles". This webinar will take place late spring and should last 60-90 minutes. After the webinar, attendees will be required to reply to a short survey about their experience. If you are interested in helping us provide our members with more opportunities (while learning about hip anatomy and turnout muscles), please contact Sébastien Hamel at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Healthy Dancer Canada is excited to continue our mission of facilitating communication and collaboration between the dance community and health professionals to enhance the health and well-being of all dancers. We have many exciting initiatives on the horizon for 2016!
