New Online Assessment

All new patients require a New Online Assessment as a professional physiotherapy requirement. Please add this to your basket and email admin@balletphysio.com with some preferred times to secure an appointment. The assessment must be completed before 13th February and usually lasts around 15 minutes. £15

All classes are available in two ways - live via zoom, or on-demand by accessing a private (unsearchable, unshareable) youtube link recorded in the live class for class participants only. Classes are aimed at vocational ballet students aged 11-18, other than the Junior Conditioning which is for students aged 8-10. All new patients are required to have a brief online assessment prior to the first class.

He was also a house parent to the graduating year and offers insights into the elite training world and specifically designed programmes for vocational students.

FAQ

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, a mat, and zoom and wifi access. Other commonly used equipment includes theraband, yoga/pilates blocks, light hand weights, soft pilates ball, 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 when you've done so.

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 class for the signed-up participants of each 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.
