We have developed a number of online conditioning programmes for Ballet, Jazz and Contemporary, which are available through Movitae.com, and our programmes are currently used by The New Zealand School of Dance as well as a number of local dance schools.
Access to the Dance Pilates conditioning syllabi is available through Movitae. Interactive support and feedback are also available should you need it from one of the Dance Pilates team.

Our popular FinerJump programme is used to improve your jump work. Each term has a specific focus. Start by working on your strength and alignment, and across the next three modules focus on landing control, ballon and jump height. This programme has three levels.
Conditioning for Contemporary
