Healthcare & Performance
Student health and physical welfare is an absolute priority to us. The School has a dedicated team of healthcare professionals and sport scientists to ensure our students stay in top mental and physical health in order to achieve peak performance.
The School’s emphasis on fitness to dance and on a “healthy dancer programme” is achieved through weekly strength and conditioning classes, Pilates and floor barre. Moreover, the School provides daily physiotherapy clinics, as well as visiting nutritionist and performance psychologist. The School has close links to external dance specialist consultants and sport and exercise doctors.
Visiting lecturers who are specialists in the fields of nutrition, performance psychology and anatomy supplement the core curriculum. We value this knowledge as part of the essential preparation for a career as professional dancer, which helps students understand their physiques and prevent injuries where possible.
This programme helps students meet the ever-increasing technical and choreographic demands imposed on dancers nowadays.
