Danse Suisse works at various levels to promote healthy working conditions for dance professionals. Danse Suisse also regularly offers workshops that provide dance professionals on stage and in schools with dance medicine knowledge. Danse Suisse is in regular exchange with organisations specialised in dance medicine in Switzerland and abroad.
