We love working with you and your dance teacher to ensure that you are strong for your shoes. So that you can not only have fun but also be safe whilst dancing en pointe.
We recommend that prior to you beginning your ‘en pointe’ journey, you complete a pre- pointe profile to establish your body readiness and needs. This is an assessment session you will have with your physiotherapist to develop a ballet profile for your feet, lower legs and pelvis control. Almost always we will recommend an individually prescribed pointe specific strengthening program – one that your physiotherapist will co-create with you.
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.
If you need any further information, do not hesitate to contact our Melbourne or Sydney clinics.
We would love to have you join us for these term based classes.
