Abstract: On Tuesday, April 1, 2008, the Dutch Performing Arts Medicine Association (NVDMG) organized a scientific, artistic and, above all, festive symposium, ¿Genees & Kunst 6,¿ for its sixth member assembly. The assembly, held at the Medical Centre of The Hague, was co-hosted by Dr. A.B.M. (Boni) Rietveld, President of NVDMG and head of the Medical Centre for Dancers & Musicians, and by Mr. P.E.

Scientific presentations, interspersed with dance and music performances, were given by NVDMG members and by two special guest presenters: Dr. W.J.B.
