Pilates for Dancers 2023


We are so excited to welcome you to Pilates for Dancers. Our class will be running in Melbourne on Mondays at 5:15pm and in Sydney on Tuesdays at 11:15am

This class combines the teachings and principles of pilates to aid in strengthening and improving ballet technique. Pilates is a great tool to assist in injury prevention and rehabilitation, and the key elements of pilates can be easily translated and applied to the foundations of ballet. Our qualified instructors will provide you with the knowledge and understanding to use pilates based exercises to strengthen and improve your ballet technique. 

This class is specifically designed for those dancers who are currently in a part-time or full-time ballet or other dance program. 

You will work on the fine control of your deep muscles in order to support your dance technique. This will include activation and dynamic control of deep abdominal/core muscles, true turnout control and intrinsic foot muscle strength as well as upper body work for port de bras and cambre lines.

You are encouraged to develop your own program specifically for your body and areas of your technique that need some love. To develop this program we will encourage you to analyse your choreography and look for areas that you may need to focus on to build your strength so that you can complete your performance work safely and injury free.
