WORKSHOPS

For Schools or Groups

Workshops are a great way to learn more about: 

  • Why injuries happen and how to prevent them,

  • Anatomy, physiology and basic biomechanics

  • Strength and conditioning methods best suited to dancers and much more!

Workshops range from 1/2 day to 2 full days, are limited in numbers, and can be tailored for specific dance school groups if required - some examples are listed below.

WORKSHOP INFORMATION

  • Anatomy, physiology and basic biomechanics

  • Common dance injuries

  • Strategies for injury prevention

  • Basic strength and conditioning home program

1 DAY WORKSHOPS

Full day workshops typically last for 6 - 7 hours including a lunch break and include both theoretical and practical components. The full day workshop allows more in-depth information on each subject.

  • Anatomy, physiology and basic biomechanics applicable to dance movements

  • Common dance injuries

  • Strategies for injury prevention

  • 1 hour strength and conditioning session

  • Basic strength and conditioning home program plus 2 - 3 exercises tailored for each individual

2 DAY WORKSHOPS

2 day workshops typically last for 6 - 7 hours each day, including lunch breaks and include both theoretical and practical components. These workshops are best suited to specific groups such as individual classes or troupes from dance schools. The 2 day workshop can run over a weekend or over 2 different weeks depending on student availability. Part of these workshops can also be tailored to focus on specific topics such as feet (for pointe work), leg strength (for allegro / jumps) or posture depending on the school's requirements. Content will usually include:

  • Anatomy, physiology and basic biomechanics applicable to dance movements

  • Common dance injuries

  • Strategies for injury prevention

  • 1 hour strength and conditioning session each day

  • Dance class each day for assessment of students strengths and weaknesses

  • Basic strength and conditioning home program plus exercises tailored for each individual as identified during assessment classes.

  • 3 x focused learning sections on different areas such as core, hips, knees, feet and ankles, posture, flexibility or basic nutrition.
