January 11, 2023 | POINTE SAFE CERTIFICATION COURSE
10% off for IADMS Members!
Pointe Safe is now offering IADMS members a discount for its upcoming Pointe Safe Certification course, beginning January 11, 2023. Registration is limited to ballet teachers. There are two class times available (9am and 3pm pacific time) to accommodate ballet teachers in different time zones. All courses will be held in English. This course structure works well for teachers who are actively teaching pre-pointe or early-pointe students.
Pointe Safe is a convenient and rigorous 8-week live-online course meeting on Wednesdays at 9am or 3pm, PST. Teachers should allow one hour and 15 minutes for each of the online sessions. The material is dense but absorbable, and we strongly recommend re-watching the recording of the class in addition to attending live. Each week includes active assignments for the ballet class and teachers will be expected to post videos and thoughts related to their work in our teacher’s forum for discussion. Week 8 is dedicated to one-on-one exit interviews with Kendall Alway, DPT, founder of Pointe Safe, and the instructor during the course.
Course alumni will have lifelong access to the alumni forum, use of the Pointe Safe marketing materials, and be listed on our website.
IADMS members will receive a 10% discount bringing the course to $549 (full price is $610). This discount will be applicable for this January's offering of Pointe Safe only. To receive this rate please note you are an IADMS member upon registration and provide the email you use for your IADMS membership for verification purposes.

January 14, 2023 | IADMS EVENT
Co-Hosted by Middlesex University
Registration Opens November
Join us for the IADMS Regional Meeting, The Holistic Dancer: The Art of Connecting Dance Science and Practice, co-hosted with Middlesex University. During this one-day event, we will explore the practices and principles that underpin dance science research in an accessible and applicable way for the dance teacher, dance artist, and choreographer. By engaging participants with the sciences in this way, we aim to guide the discourse on how best to adapt dance practice in order to enhance the performance of future professional dancers and choreographers. Join us for a day of integrated learning, with lectures focused on translating the academic/technical language used in peer-reviewed scientific and clinical research articles, and movement/interactive sessions that will incorporate the sciences into applied practice for dancers of all levels and ages.
January 14, 2023 | IN PERSON EVENT
Saturday, January 14th, 2023 11am-5pm PST
Facilitated by Valerie Chafograck and Sarah Crowell
This is an IN PERSON Conscious Dance and Rest workshop designed for all self-identified Black, Indigenous, and People of Color.
First month of the year, first breath, first step... What am I leaving? What am I about to enter?
As we encounter the various external ebbs and flows around us, a call to pause, rest, and listen invites us to re-enter the present moment. Using our body as a vehicle of awareness, we can consciously make choices, respond, and begin again.
We move solo from our vertical, inward listening, to then further extend our dance horizontally including others in the room.
A community ritual will create a space to set intentions, express, witness one another and offer our souls in motion. No experience is necessary to embark on this journey... just the willingness to be curious.
