PILATES FOR DANCERS
Pulse Pilates specialises in Pilates tailored specifically for dancers. Our programme aims to help to:
- Improve Dance technique
- Retrain movement patterns
- Increase understanding of how the body works
- Prevent injuries
- Rehabilitate from injury
- Prepare the young dancer for the rigors of the dance world.
Our Dance programme is available in the studio utilising the larger Pilates equipment, and caters for all forms of Dance. Pilates is an ideal complement to dance training, with the focus on strengthening the deep support muscles, and balancing all muscle groups.
Our aim is to educate the young dancer, whilst developing strength and flexibility where needed. We hope to give our dance students the tools to know how to get the most out of their bodies, whilst protecting themselves from injury.
If you are injured, or returning from surgery, we are able to work in with the relevent medical professionsls to rehabilitate and strengthen you for your return to the dance studio. Utilising the Pilates equipment provides a low impact environment, where we are able to support your injury.
We can slowly help you to regain strength and mobility in both the injured area and surounding muscles, easing individuals into full weight bearing activties, without stress or overload.
We are also available to bring our Dance-specific workshops to your dance studio.
Workshops available include:
- Basic Pilates for Dance
- Developing Turnout
- Preparation and Strength for Pointe work
