Healthy Dancer Canada will be holding its 2017 conference in Calgary from November 10 to 12, 2017.
Proposals for lectures, workshops, and poster presentations are now being accepted. Please see the attached document for specific submission requirements.
Healthy Dancer Canada’s mission is to foster and facilitate communication and collaboration among the dance community, health professionals and researchers. We endeavour to enhance the health, well-being and performance of all dancers and to be the Canadian leader in this effort. Proposals should clearly address our mission, and the target audience for all presentations should include at least three populations of the dance community, e.g. dancer, health care provider, educator. Proposals should also include the relevance to the conference theme, Science to Studio to Stage.
Presentations may be in lecture, workshop or poster format. Please see attached for full abstract submission format requirements (maximum 350 words). Additionally, you may choose to submit a proposal for a combined presentation (e.g. lecture and workshop). In your proposal please indicate if you wish to be considered for Healthy Dancer Canada’s Annual Research Award for research in dancer health, wellness and performance.
The deadline for submission is May 8, 2017. For more information on Healthy Dancer Canada, you can visit healthydancercanada.org. We look forward to hearing from all applicants!
