Inner West Dance Conditioning
Do you want to use your body to its full potential?
Do you hear the same corrections from your teachers all the time?
Do you have a competition season coming up and need extra conditioning work?
Have you been injured and need clinical rehab with a dance physio?
Is there a particular milestone you want to achieve and is somewhat stuck in progression?
As part of our Clinical Conditioning, our dance physiotherapists Winnie and Natalie have put together our Dance conditioning program. This is extremely popular among full time ballet and contemporary dance students, and professional dancers from various dance backgrounds such as Pole, Musical Theatre, Ballroom and Latin dance.
Dancers work in small groups (max 3) with our dance physios on Pilates equipment, to strengthen a range of muscle groups to enhance dance performance. We also use these classes to provide clinical rehabilitation for our dancers when injured.

Feet intrinsics muscles

How Do I Enrol?
Please book an ‘Initial physiotherapy consultation for starting group classes’ online to see our physio first. In this one-on-one appointment we assess your body, including any existing or previous injuries. This is required regardless of your movement background, as we draw important information from this assessment to develop your personalised exercise program, ensuring that it is safe and that it addresses your needs for maximum benefit.
This assessment is not required for an existing patient transitioning from physiotherapy to class.
