Conference: Dance for Health - Health for Dance

Dance for Health - Health for Dance

Balettakademien Stockholm proudly invites you to attend the conference Dance for Health – Health for Dance, which will take place in Stockholm, Sweden, on 8-10 November.

  • Dance for Health: How can the benefits of dance be used to promote health? Our speakers and workshop leaders will give us the latest on dance and neuroscience, as well as share their expertise in leading dance groups for the elderly, for young people in the community, and for persons with Parkinson's disease.
  • Health for Dance: an important factor when it comes to treating and preventing dance injuries.

By attending this conference you get to listen to and learn from some of the most renowned persons within this field, during two full days of interesting lectures and workshops.

To this event we have invited international guest lecturers to share their thoughts and experiences with us, in both lectures and workshops.
