Join us in January for a unique hybrid IADMS Regional Meeting held at Middlesex University, London, UK, and live streamed to virtual attendees worldwide. Over the course of the day's meeting, participants will explore the practices and principles that underpin dance science research with faculty from a variety of dance genres. Practical and theoretical sessions from researchers and teachers will cover a range of topics from Irish dance, inclusive dance practice, embedding evidence-based practice in vocational training, hormones and performance, a somatic framework for teaching, and much more!

By presenting the science in a wide range of practices, we aim to:

- Educate dance teachers on how to incorporate sports/dance science into the classroom without compromising the art form.

- Explain the impact of sound, scientific principles on dance training.

- Provide an integrated learning experience that translates peer-reviewed scientific and clinical research into applied use for dancers of all levels and ages.
