    Program Options 

    Injury Prevention    

    Every performer wants to stay on the stage! Let us help you stay healthy and performing at your best. Dancers, musicians, and actors can visit us pre-season, in season and off season to prepare them for the physical demands of performing. In addition, our clinicians can come to your studio or rehearsal space for a personally-tailored injury prevention seminar.   


    Performance Enhancement  

    Our program includes targeted exercise prescription to take performance to the next level.  Content is all encompassing and is designed to push the limits of the client’s abilities.   



    Pre-pointe Evaluations   

    Dancing en pointe is an advanced skill that requires excellent range of motion, strength and motor control. Our pre-pointe evaluations include the best available evidence to determine if a dancer is ready to begin the physical demands of pointe work. After the evaluation, the dancer will receive recommendations for a personalized exercise program to reduce the risk for injury and optimize performance. Contact us to schedule an evaluation for an individual dancer, or inquire about setting up assessments for an entire class.
