This interactive 1-hour workshop will provide teachers the tools and knowledge to continue to encourage the students to work efficiently and effectively en pointe. Teachers will be provided with detailed instructions and work with the physiotherapist through a series of strengthening exercises that focus on pelvis &and hips, groin, calves and feet. It will cover the most common injuries that can occur with pointe work and their signs and symptoms. Participants will require space enough to complete practical exercises, a barre (or similar support), exercise band (and/or loop) and a mat for floorwork.

  • Use an interactive format to demonstrate and practice strength-based exercises for all students who are en pointe 
  • Demonstrate and teach a series of useful exercises targeting the core, thoracic area, adductors, gluteals and lower leg 
  • Enable teachers to gain practical experience of each exercise to utilise with their students in class
