Dance Medicine-Performers Physiotherapy
Performers Physiotherapy was created to deliver specialist assessments to dancers and musical theatre performers. Both Nicola and Leon are registered practitioners with One Dance UK and have both lectured on One Dance UKís Healthier Dancer Programme. Performers Physiotherapy is involved with research into fitness and injury prevention in dancers / musical theatre performers in the hope that this will further general knowledge in the areas of keeping dancers healthy and minimising time lost to injury.
Physiotherapy for Performers College & Evolution Foundation College Students
Performers Physiotherapy provides the on-site physiotherapy services for Performers College and Evolution Foundation College. Nicola, Leon & Amanda have extensive experience of working with dancers and work as part of the team atboth colleges. Liaising closely with both tutors and students alike, from the day of their audition right through until graduation and beyond, they are able to recommend the correct action required to reduce injury time, and more importantly, prevent injuries occurring in the first place.
Our affiliation with the Dancer Wellness Project based in the USA has enabled us to lead the way on the world stage with injury screening for the musical theatre dancer. Collaboration with the University of Wolverhampton has lead to opportunities to be involved in ground breaking research within musical theatre dancer health.
Having the physiotherapists so closely involved with the college means that in the unfortunate event of an injury occurring, timetables and activity can be modified to minimise the impact on our studentís training.
All our physiotherapists are also qualified to use Pilates as a clinical tool to assist with the treatment of any injuries, and by working closely with the college staff on rehabilitation programmes, injury time can be minimised. The ability to stay in shape whilst nursing an injury and learning to work correctly is of paramount importance to any dancer.
