Do you need to work on a particular area of dance that is holding you back? Do you need guidance with a supervised whole-body strengthening programme to improve core strength, posture and turnout? Maybe your teacher has advised you to get a particular body part ‘checked out’. The Ballet Physio has you covered.
If you need a general, whole body strength and flexibility upgrade, then the Personalised Conditioning Programme is for you.
We start with a 1-hour comprehensive assessment to find the most important areas to improve (is the limiting factor strength, flexibility, or control?) and set the exercises to address these.
Then, at times and intervals that suit you, we run through a series of four half-hour follow-up sessions to make sure the exercises are working effectively and to progress them as quickly as possible.
Past participants regularly comment how their teachers notice higher arabesque lines, improved posture, and better-held turnout.
Dancers who struggle with extensions, or whose turns are letting them down, or whose jumps are their main detractor, will benefit from the extra time this programme offers.
We start with a 1-hour comprehensive assessment to diagnose the cause of the struggle and set some exercises to help. We then also work at applying the activation of these exercises into your challenging steps. ‘How do I use my turnout muscles while I’m doing developpe?’ ‘How do I coordinate my strong legs to jump higher?’ – we help you discover the answers.
We then follow up with four hour-long sessions a few weeks apart to progress the exercises and develop your understanding of how to use your new-found strength and control.
We often find that five sessions is enough to make significant progress, although some dancers aren’t satisfied with stopping there! If you want to continue progressing these areas with Luke, you can extend both programmes with a Programme Extension Package of an additional 5 sessions.
Both the Personalised Conditioning, and Facility Optimisation programmes can be extended beyond your initial sessions. Each Programme Extension Package includes an additional 5 sessions.
If you do not want to book a complete programme package, you can book your follow-up appointments as individual 30-minute or 1-hour sessions, following your initial consultation.
