A pre pointe profile is recommended to have prior to you beginning your ‘en pointe’ journey. This is a session you will have with your physiotherapist to develop a ballet profile for your feet, lower legs and pelvis control.
What to wear: Please wear comfortable clothing (shorts/leggings, a singlet top or leotard, and bare feet) and do not warm up prior to joining us. Please try not to be nervous when you see us – we will explain each part of the profile, what we’re assessing and why! We’re with you on this journey and want you to feel comfortable.
We recommend to have your Pre-Pointe Profile built with us in the studio, however we understand the difficulties this may pose between lockdowns or geographical barriers! So luckily, we can also be done virtually if it is difficult for you to come into the studio. To be prepared, here is a list of what you will need to set up a virtual pre-pointe profile assessment:
In most cases, we find that there are areas where you may need to increase your strength and control. We will give you some specific exercises that will help you to continue to build your strength. We will discuss the most appropriate plan for you to begin ‘en pointe’ as safely as possible.
While it may be disappointing if you are not ready for ‘en pointe’ just yet – it is important to remember that we all grow and develop at different rates. Our aim is to ensure you are as strong as possible before going ‘en pointe’ to avoid any injuries from occurring.
We are looking forward to meeting you, and being part of your ‘en pointe’ journey. If you need any further information, do not hesitate to contact our reception team on 9686 2373.
