85% of ballet injuries can be linked to poor technique, so why not screen dancers for potential injury risk, and improve this to not only reduce injury risk, but improve performance?
Karrie Malan is a physiotherapist with experience and training in dance specific injuries and technique modification.
A dancing screening uses simple tests, exercises and ballet movements to assess a dancer's technique, areas of good control or weakness.
If testing shows up issues, dancers are given exercises to improve these, before safely progressing to pointe work.
Please wear leggings and a tight top, and your dance shoes to allow your physio to easily see your lower back, hips, knees and ankles.
If you already have pointed shoes, please bring them along.
