Abstract: On Saturday, February 5th, 2011, the Dutch Performing Arts Medicine Association (Nederlandse Vereniging voor Dans- en MuziekGeneeskunde, NVDMG) organized a Symposium for and by allied health care professionals, held in the Medisch Centrum Haaglanden (MCH, Medical Centre of The Hague). Allied health care professionals, such as physiotherapists, manual therapists, Mensendieck therapists, speech therapists, and foot therapists, form a vital and indispensable link in the chain of healthcare and cure for dancers, musicians, and singers. The intention of the symposium was to highlight the practical and experience-related approach of allied health care providers, both in the presentations and in the artistic intermezzi. Apart from the exchange of knowledge and experience, there was ample opportunity for informal contact, facilitating and stimulating the formation of an interdependent network of allied health care providers specialized and/or interested in dance, music, and singing in The Netherlands.
