DancePilates.com runs customised Pilates sessions, movement education workshops and specific dance programmes to, prevent injury, improve dance technique, increase understanding of movement principles and prepare the dancer for the demands of their dance form.
We are proud to support Auckland dance schools and dancers and congratulate our many successful young dancers. Over recent years, Dance Pilates students have been accepted to a number of prestigous dance institutions including: The New Zealand School of Dance (12 dancers), The New Zealand Ballet Company (1), the Australian Ballet School (12), the Royal Ballet School (1), Ballet West (1) and The Paris Opera Ballet Company (1), and have dominated competitions such as the Alana Haines Australasian competition.
We are actively involved in dance research and our finerPointe programme is used by The New Zealand School of Dance. In 2013 we are introducing a new High Performance Programme.
The instructors have backgrounds in and links with the wider dance and medical community. We have two expert musculoskeletal physiotherapists, a former dancer with the Royal Ballet Company London and a former principal dancer with the Royal New Zealand Ballet. We are actively involved in dance research and one of our instructors is currently completing a Masters in dance science. All our instructors have a special interest in and experience with working with dancers. Find out more
We have a collaborative approach, and use our online system to record individual information against each session, build your profile and your homework. So if your regular instructor is unavailable another team member can assist you in their absence.
If you get injured we are able to work together with your dance physiotherapist to provide a graded rehabilitation programme back into your dance environment.
