NEW ONLINE CLASS ASSESSMENT
All new dancers require a New Online Assessment as a professional physiotherapy requirement. Please add this to your basket and email firstname.lastname@example.org with some preferred times to secure an appointment. The assessment must be completed before your first class and usually lasts around 15 minutes.
THE BALLET PHYSIO
Luke Abnett specialises in ballet physiotherapy, getting his start being the sole physiotherapist at the Royal Ballet School in Covent Garden. He was also a house parent to the graduating year and these experiences give him an expertise in vocationally training dancers. Known for his unique brand of fun and encouraging classes, he enjoys seeing dancers pick up new skills to enhance their ballet training.
Who should attend the course?
Classes are aimed at vocational ballet students (aged 8-10 or 11-18 depending on the class) who are seeking to improve their facility (ie the natural areas of strength and flexibility in the body). All new patients are required to have a brief online assessment prior to the first class - please email email@example.com to schedule.
What should I wear to the class?
Comfortable ballet attire will be best - the more I can see the more I can correct and help you! Leotard, perhaps with shorts or baggies if desired.
What equipment do I need?
Mostly just yourself, ballet attire, a mat, and zoom and wifi access. Commonly used equipment includes theraband, yoga/pilates blocks, light hand weights, a cushion.
I've missed the start but I'm still interested to join - is this possible?
Yes! As all classes are recorded for class participants, you can catch up on the replay and join us live afterwards.
I have to miss a class because of a clash - what can I do? Also: I really want to do the class but I can't make that time -what can I do?
Due to the fact we record each online class for the signed-up participants of the class, if you sign up but can't make the time you will still have access to the replay. You will hear and see the corrections I give to the dancers in the live room, which will help you to apply these cues to your own performance. (You can also email me a short clip of you doing an exercise you're really not sure of and I can offer some advice!)
I can't access the youtube replay - what can I do?
Please check that you are logged into youtube using the email address you registered for the course. You will need to have a youtube account with that email address. This is so youtube recognises you to give you permission to view, and is an important privacy setting for us. Sometimes it helps to log out and then in again, or to restart your device and re-log-in.
