Dance Alliance of Rhode Island invites the performance and medical communities (and other interested parties) to participate in New Perspectives - A Performance Arts Medicine Seminar on February 23, 2003.
The goal of this day-long seminar is to promote a safer environment (and longer careers) in the Performing Arts and to increase awareness of the medical and scientific information available to the Performing Arts. Recent research and the some of the most up-to-date therapeutic approaches for the prevention and treatment of movement injuries will be covered. Topics will include the career-saving treatment of a snapped Achilles tendon at the Boston Ballet, how to evaluate dance students, an introduction to Body Therapies, Performance Psychology, and more.
Anyone interested in decreasing the chances for injury and improving recovery for performing artists (and recreational artists) is welcome to attend. Dancers, Actors, Vocal & Instrumental Musicians, Figure Skaters, Gymnasts, Performing Arts Educators and Medical Practioners will all benefit from this seminar.
The Seminar is being co-hosted by Dance Alliance, the RI Alliance for Arts Education and the University of Rhode Island Physical Therapy Program, and will be held at URI's Physical Therapy Department in Kingston Rhode Island. Thanks to the generous donations of the above groups, the speakers and additional funding by the Rhode Island State Council for the Arts, you will pay a much lower price for New Perspectives than would otherwise be possible.
