DANCE ALERT

Avoid injury, and get the most out of your dance moves

You will gain invaluable information about your body to help you improve your dancing

See our physiotherapist Maria Anagnostou for help and guidance with your dancing regime

Do you love to dance? Whether you’re a hip hop aficionado, salsa enthusiast or a ballerina at heart, the body and movement requirements of a dancer are both demanding and specific.

Wouldn’t it be nice to know what physical things you could work on to help make you more balanced, flexible and move more freely? Consider having a dance-specific screening assessment.

A dance screening is a thorough examination covering foot control; hip and pelvic strength; posture; and dance-specific flexibility. You will gain invaluable information about your body to help you improve your dancing, eliminate pain and reduce the risk of injury. Through this comprehensive assessment, specific tailored exercises can be prescribed to help correct any problem areas.

While elite dancers undergo this process regularly, specific screening assessment is suitable for any dancer regardless of age or level. We offer a variety of screenings depending on your needs including:

  • Completion of tertiary dance council screening
  • Pre-pointe assessment and screening
  • General dance strength and flexibility screening

Come and see our trained physiotherapist and be empowered to bend, twirl and pirouette (or booty pop and shuffle!) with confidence.
