The Healthy Dance Practice Certificate reflects the ethos and vision that we have been driving for many years within the Healthier Dancer Programme.
Experts in the field who work both with NIDMS and IADMS have been involved in the writing of this certificate. What is clear is that there is a need for a stand-alone certificate that anyone can take not genre or level specific, so the required knowledge can be evidenced in any context. This is positive step forward for the enhancement of the health, wellbeing and performance of dancers of all ages and at all levels.
