The International Association for Dance Medicine & Science (IADMS) was officially formed in 1990 as a direct result of the National Dance Association’s Committee on Dance Science and Medicine. IADMS started with approximately 30 members and has now grown to over 1600 multidisciplinary members worldwide. While IADMS's mission has evolved over the years, it has always worked to promote networks and linkages between dance, medicine, and science. IADMS offers members-only and public webinars and events, resource papers, scientific publications, and much more. IADMS is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization, incorporated in the United States.
