Workshops in Dance Medicine

What is Dance Medicine?
Dance Medicine is comparable to Sports Medicine. Just as Sports Medicine is concerned with athletes, in Dance Medicine the focus is on the special needs of dancers.
The medical and physiotherapeutic care of dancers is different from that of athletes, because the demands and stress in dance are not the same as in sports. TanzMedizin Deutschland e.V. (www.tamed.de) is active in Germany, Austria and Switzerland and, among other activities, offers continued studies with a certification in this subject. These courses are intended to inform medical doctors and physiotherapists about the special needs of dancers and also to help dance teachers and dancers to achieve a medically correct training. The subects of these continued studies are manifold: from anatomy to alternative training methods and from neurology to methods of communication in dance classes.
