Upcoming Town Hall: Dancers’ Bodies. Promoting Wellness.

I’m really looking forward to attending this event on May 16th, organized by Dance/NYC and Dance/USA.

Town Hall: Dancers’ Bodies. Promoting Wellness.

Calling All Stakeholders in Dance!

Dance/NYC and the Dance/USA Taskforce on Dancer Health invite you to join us in responding to the Taskforce’s recent call to action to achieve the dancer aesthetic in a manner that promotes overall good health and protects the artist and performer. Led by Richard Gibbs, M.D., it provides a forum to discuss case stories from the perspective of the health professional, cultural critic, and professional dancer, including New York City Ballet Principal Dancers Jenifer Ringer and Jared Angle. What words work to promote dancer wellness? What positive practices? What can we as a field do for our dancers?

Speakers: Richard Gibbs, Jared Angle, Jen Edwards, Melissa Gerson, Jenifer Ringer
