About Dance and Performance

Whether you are a dancer, performer or passionate about your calisthenics, rhythmic gymnastics, circus or cheerleading, our dedicated and passionate team of therapists and medical professionals are here to help.

Given the experience and scope of our dance team of professionals, we are uniquely placed to be able to provide comprehensive management for all dancers and performers to prepare their bodies for the demands of classwork and performance and, wherever possible, to keep them in the studio and on stage. 

Dance specialist services include:

Whether you require a physiotherapist, podiatrist, doctor, Pilates trained therapist or dietitian, we have the framework to manage your injury between one or multiple professionals.

To rise through demipointe onto pointe requires exceptional strength, not only in the foot and ankle, but also around the hips.

Supervised conditioning programs aimed at improving your body’s capacity to perform at its best.
