The Modules

All of the modules in this course are based around the areas that I get most the questions about as a Physiotherapist for Dancers. The content is broken down in an easy to understand way, because we don't believe you need a medical science degree to understand how to help your dancers advance their technique!

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:

Coaching Call #3 - Hip Pain in a Professional Dancer - Level 1 Dance Teacher Training - Lisa Howell - The Ballet Blog
Coaching Call #13 - Growth Related Injuries - Level 1 Dance Teacher Training - Lisa Howell - The Ballet Blog
Coaching Call #18 - Hypermobile Knees - Level 1 Dance Teacher Training - Lisa Howell - The Ballet Blog
Coaching Call #21 - Shoulder Pain and Instability in Acrobats - Level 1 Dance Teacher Training - Lisa Howell - The Ballet Blog

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 Ah ha 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!
