NEW ONLINE CLASS ASSESSMENT

All new dancers joining the the Ballet Physio require a New Online Class Assessment - this is a professional physiotherapy requirement. This ticket also includes participation in our Fundamental Conditioning Class - go through the fundamentals with Luke at a manageable pace before you join your other class/es and hit the ground running! Please add this ticket to your basket. Dancers will receive both a 15 min one-to-one with Luke, and admission to the class on Sunday 25th July at 1:00-2:00pm (please note this class can be done via replay if you aren't available at the time).

FAQ

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 admin@balletphysio.com to schedule. All classes are suitable and fun for both boys and girls to attend.

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, dining chair.

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 Youube 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.
