Pilates for Dancers is a one day, 6 REPs points introductory course which explores the requirements of the dancer and the demands of regime to provide a broad understanding of Pilates based dance rehabilitation.
Pilates for Dancers will look at the specific needs of the dancer, with the focus on ballet, in relation to common injuries, technique flaws, determining pointe shoe readiness, and how to choose or modify the Pilates exercises to be more specific to the dancer population. We will take a more in depth look at the lumbopelvic region, the hip and the foot and ankle, as well as consider the necessity of mobilization and the importance of proprioception and balance re-education.
