IADMS (International Association for Dance Science and Medicine) is an inclusive organization for professionals who care for dancers. Its mission is to advance practice in the various fields of dance science, education, research, and medical care.
Its goal is to build a global community that provides accessible, applicable, evidence-based research, resources, and programs to improve dancer health and to use dance to improve health.
Specifically, IADMS is developing a Dance for Health mission that uses research to best tailor activities to address physical, mental, and social health challenges.
The teaching artists who teach the classes are trained to interact with participants as dancers rather than patients in a research-based, holistic, artistic, interactive and joyful practice.
