Parents' Ballet Health Seminar
Wednesday 1st September 2021 at 6:30-7:30pm
What do I need to look out for during a growth spurt?
What are the unique needs of dancers when it comes to keeping their bones healthy and avoiding stress fractures?
How much training is too much? Or too little?
What do I need to know about pointe training?
How are children's bodies different from adult bodies?
Growing bodies have specific needs for healthy growth, and elite level ballet training carries particular requirements too. Learn how to connect the dots in our first seminar for parents. We delve into the particulars of the growing body and of ballet training, provide tips on what to watch out for as a parent, and give the opportunity to quiz a ballet specialist physiotherapist on any questions you may have.
Curious to find out more? Come and join Ballet Physio Luke Abnett via zoom at the start of Autumn term.
Passes for the Parents' Seminar are £15. (Please note the seminar will be recorded for those unable to attend at the time.)
The zoom link will be included in your confirmation email. Register via the button below today!
Luke Abnett used to coordinate health care at the Royal Ballet School in Covent Garden as their sole physiotherapist. He was also an upper school house parent and has seen the many different needs of the ballet student.
Since moving exclusively to private practice, he treats ballet injuries, conducts facility optimisation programmes on a variety of skills and physical areas, and runs ballet strengthening classes via zoom and in person.
