Latest Conference Special Guest Update
Our latest addition to the presenting team at The 2018 Science in Dance Conference is Stephanie De'Ath of One Dance UK and the National Institute for Dance Medicine and Science.
Stephanie is a Soft Tissue Therapist who works with a variety of vocational and professional Dancers to educate them in the physiology of Dance.
Dancers are always looking for the best way to improve their condition and readiness for every given day of Dancing and we have invited Stephanie to the Conference to talk about doing just that. Her insight to self myo-fascial release and soft tissue techniques to aid short term changes recovery and performance will allow conference attendees to take away knowledge and apply it to their own practises whether they are Dancing themselves or aiding Dancers.
It is an honour for Science in Dance to have a representative from NIDMS present at the event as the the institute is at the forefront of Dance knowledge both in the UK and Europe... maybe even the world. All that aside, Stephanie shares like minded philosophies to the members of Science in Dance in her pursuit to aid Dancers in the safest and most effective ways.
The Presentation will be part practical, part lecture based.
