From Injury to Performance: Lessons to Share in Dance and Sports, 2011

The Healthier Dancer Programme Conference for 2011, From Injury to Performance: Lessons to Share in Dance and Sports, was jointly organised by the Royal Society of Medicine and Dance UK to address the causes, impact, effective prevention and management of injuries in elite dance and sport. These two areas have much in common in terms of the demands placed on the human body and mind and the run up to the London 2012 Olympics was a great moment to learn from each other.
