Young Dancers Academy


Specialist dance injury rehabilitation for YDA students!


Optimal ballet biomechanics are of prime importance to underpin safe training in young dancers. When the body's joints and muscles work in fine-tuned balance this in turn enhances the speed of technique development and overall progression.

With experience leading health care provision at the Royal Ballet School upper school, the Ballet Physio has seen the specific requirements of demanding dance training at the highest level and now enjoys bringing this level of care to aspiring young dancers in and around London.
