Aloha All (I’m now based in Hawaii!) –
We wanted to let you know a couple things going on with our Dance Wellness column…
1. If any of you have any specific requests on topics for us to discuss in the column, please let me know. I have many things on my list that I’d love to talk with you about, and also have more guest contributors lined up. But we’d like to hear from YOU as well. Just so you know, here are some upcoming topics that are on my list (not listed in order of how they will be posted!!) –
-Nutrition for Dancers
-Motor Learning for Dancers
-Somatics for Dancers
-Adolescent Growth Spurt
-Specifics on various injuries such as Ankle Sprain, etc.
2. If you have an injury and would like personal help in connecting with a medical professional in your area who works in dance medicine, please feel free to contact me on email. I also recommend that you join IADMS (there are student rates), as you will then have access to the membership database, which will provide you with names in your area.
You can reach me on either of the above topics at jddanmed (at) aol.com
Aloha to all and take care of yourselves / Happy Dancing !!
