A quarterly publication, designed to keep the membership abreast of current events within the organization and in the dance medicine, dance science, and dance education communities. The Newsletter is emailed to all members and back issues are available to members as PDF files. Newsletter submissions should be sent to the IADMS Newsletter Editor, via email as an attachment (word processing or text file).
Bulletin for Dancers and Teachers
The IADMS Bulletin for Dancers and Teachers applies dance medicine/science theory and research to practical problems in dance education, dance training, and dance performance. It addresses issues of concern to teachers of amateur, pre-professional or professional dancers across the age span. The articles identify practical teaching problems and present scientific knowledge that may enlighten teaching practices.
Resource papers and resource paper translations
Resource Papers present applications of current medical knowledge and scientific research to dance teaching, forming a bridge between the technical aspects of dance medicine/science and the day-to-day needs of dancers and dance teachers.
