  • Dates:  26th –  28th June, 2023 (Monday – Wednesday)
  • Times: 9am to 4pm daily
  • Location: Bayside Dance
  • Address: 2/264 Tingal Road, Wynnum, QLD, 4178, AU
  • Directions: CLICK HERE to get directions.

The Course has four main parts: 

  • Part 1: Understanding Normal – The Anatomy of the Dancers Foot:
    • Understanding how the dancers foot should work in an ideal world is essential in correctly identifying the often minor issues that can lead to recurrent injuries.
    • This is a critical part of the process, so we will review and refine the assessment process over the three days, ensuring you leave feeling confident in assessing your dancers feet by the completion of the course.
  • Part 2: Common Foot Injuries:
    • In this section we look at how deviations from normal can lead to common foot injuries, including:
      • Plantar Fascia Pain
      • Pain at the Back of the Ankle
      • Severs Disease
      • Stress Fractures
      • Bunions
      • “Shin Splints”
      • Lateral Ankle Sprains
    • For each of these issues we explore
      • The Anatomy – What is actually wrong
      • The main causes – and how it can be prevented
      • What to expect from physical therapy
      • Effective hands-on treatment techniques
      • Taping techniques
      • An outline of the rehab process
      • How to manage this injury in the classroom
  • Part 3: Returning to Class:
    • This is one of the most crucial stages in managing dancers foot injuries. We look at the common pitfalls of returning to class too quickly, along with ways to keep dancers engaged during the rehab process. A thorough and detailed return to class plan is the key to returning safely to dance and preventing recurrence of the same injury in the future.
    • We provide templates that can be customised based on the age and experience of the dancer, as well as their particular set of contributing factors.
  • Part 4: Prevention:
    • The ideal scenario is where these injuries are prevented before they even start.
    • Regular screening is a must, so we look at ways that this can be done within the studio or clinical environment.
    • We look at creative ideas to help busy dancers fit detailed conditioning programs into their schedules, and sample class plans to weave specific conditioning into each levels ongoing training.
