New Online Teacher Training!

I am devastated to be unable to travel abroad for all of the scheduled teacher training workshops we had planned for 2020, but thanks to the wonders of modern technology, I have created a unique learning experience for you.

Thankfully, before Covid-19 happened I meticulously filmed every part of the three day Level 1 workshop, including all my anecdotes, assessment tests, exercises and explorations to create a unique, and extensive Online Teacher Training Portal. Previously this has only been available to teachers who have participated in the workshop, however, due to the number of requests I have received from teachers all over the world wanting to make the most of this unusual time, I have made the decision to open it up to a limited number of new members. 

This offer is only available to 100 new teachers or clinicians

Make the most of your time out of the studio to enhance your learning!

Recent global events have forced us all to radically change our style of teaching and learning. Many of us are working and teaching from home, and having to modify our regular teaching to fit into the limitations of our dancer's home situation, which may include smaller spaces and non-optimal flooring. 

This is a perfect time to dive deep in other areas of a dancer's education, including exploration of individual anatomy, personalised rehab programs and specific dance conditioning to maximise performance (for when we can perform again!) and there are hundreds of examples of this kind of work in the Level 1 Teacher Training.

In addition to all of the original content, I have also continued to add to the collection of videos with regular coaching calls, discussing and demonstrating how to apply all often content to specific situations such as working with a dancer with hip pain, dealing with Plantar Fascia Pain and Managing Back Pain. I have also created numerous downloadable PDF's for use in class, to make it even easier to apply the ideas to your daily lessons. 

We know that learning in person is so much more engaging than watching videos online, and I personally love meeting every teacher who attends my courses. To replicate the depth of learning and personal connection we feel at the in-person course I conduct regular Zoom Coaching Calls to ensure you get the most out of your investment in your education. 

This offer is only available for the first 100 teachers or clinicians for just $99 USD per month

 (NB: After continued membership for 6 months you will qualify to drop to the ongoing subscription for just $49 USD per month)

The Modules

All of the modules in this Level 1 Teacher Training course are based around the areas that I get most the questions about as a Physiotherapist for Dancers. They also include many tips and techniques that I have developed while working on injury recover, injury prevention and performance enhancement in dancers for the last 20 years.

I have been working closely with thousands of Dance teachers and Therapists who work with dancers for the last 20 years and have realised that many individuals are struggling with the same issues globally. Part of this seems to be  due to how dance teacher are taught to teach. There is often very little focus on the analysis of the individual dancer's anatomy when working towards a certain step, which can make all the difference in the success of some students. 

Example Module - The Dancers Hip

The dancer must achieve extraordinary control over the musculature around the hip to achieve the positions and movements that are required in today’s choreography. The ranges of motion that are expected at young ages are very challenging, and in some cases are detrimental to the dancer’s long term prospects. Due to the prevalence of images and videos spreading through Social Media young students are wanting to achieve positions that are not actually safe for the development of their bones and joints and are risking serious and long term damage by doing so.

This module looks in detail at the dancers hip, helping you understand why some things come so easily to some dancers, while others struggle. We look at assessing the hip, not to rule anyone out, but to discover the exact tissues that are restricting range in order to safely release them. We then look at sequences to train control of turnout in different positions, including Standing Leg Turnout, Turnout en Fondu and Turnout Devant, in order to achieve optimal control. 

The Coaching Calls

It is one thing learning the in's and out's of all elements of a dancer's body, but it is another being able to apply everything real-time with the body in front of you. To create easy to follow maps for each different presentation that you may see in the studio I conduct regular (every 1-2 weeks) Members Coaching Calls. These are each focussed on one topic, usually based around a specific question from a member, for example; Pain at the Back of the Ankle. We look at all of the different elements that need to be considered when working with the issue, from the anatomy involved, right through to how to manage it in class. This is a wonderful way to learn how to apply all of the content in the base training to the scenarios you will see in real life. 

Each call is approximately 60 mins long, and we usually have time for further questions at the end. Previous topics have included:

What people are saying 

Having been frustrated for so many years with questions no one seemed to have answers for, It was pure relief and one AHA moment after another when I met Lisa and joined the Members Portal. The most important thing Lisa gave me and my students was hope for change and improvement and a renewed excitement for learning more about how our intricate bodies are designed. Lisa is so fun to work with! She's extremely personable, encouraging and makes things easy to use  The members portal is brilliant! The content is well organized, and very clearly explained. Every time I return to a section for a refresher I am able to absorb a little more. The coaching calls are the highlight of my week, being able to connect with Lisa in person and have personal feedback is invaluable. I also love how Lisa designs the programs in PDF's with checklists and evaluations making it easy to pass along to my students. Thanks Lisa for your incredible dedication and passion!

Lisa is truly a gift to the dance world! She selflessly shares her knowledge in a way that's clear, easy to understand, and well-organized. Her approach is extremely effective, and I'm continously amazed at how immediate the results are.

Having attended numerous of Lisa’s workshops I love having the members portal to go back to to remind myself of exercises to make sure I am actually doing them correctly ;) Its also a great resource for finding solutions for a students problem area. I think my favourite part though, has to be the weekly members calls ( they are worth staying up late for). Getting a weekly dose of knowledge and actually doing something for myself as a teacher on a weekly basis is fantastic. I can really recommend signing up!
