We have many workshops that are available to be run at your dance school, ranging from lectures and student workshops to full day teacher training workshops.
The progressions achieved in these workshops will benefit students in all styles of dance, with techniques learnt in the sessions being applied easily into dance class that day. If you are interested in holding some of these workshops please download the form below, fill it out and return to us.
These unique workshops combine specialised physiotherapy knowledge to accelerate the development of a dancer's technique, by eliminating many of the common physical restrictions including reduced pointe range, restricted turnout and decreased flexibility and core control. The courses are fun and engaging for all students, and they leave with a wonderful feeling of empowerment, with the tools to transform their own body!
Most workshops are 2 hours long and based around one of our resources, such as the Front Splits Fast Flexibility Program. All students participating will receive the appropriate manual, included in the course fee. Please note that we do have age restrictions on some classes due to the depth of the content. However, we can customise certain classes to the ages of your students if needed.
Workshops Available (All 2 Hours):
Our shorter (60-90 minute) classes can help your students overcome common issues seen in class or we can customise one to fit your needs. Classes are available to dance schools around the Sydney area either in combination with workshop for a once off event or on a more regular bi-weekly or monthly basis.
OR Make Your Own Class!
Most dance teachers have several areas that they know their students are struggling with yet may find it difficult to come up with ways of resolving this for the whole class. If you are having any issues within a class of students (such as chronic Achilles pain) let us know and we can structure a class to fit your needs!
In addition to our student workshops, dance schools can also host 4 hour workshops for their teachers.
Teacher Workshops Available:
Please Note: These teacher workshops are separate to the Level 1 & 2 Teacher Training workshops sold on www.theballetblog.com. There is a minimum of 10 and a maximum of 20 participants in any Teachers Workshops. The dance studio host will be responsible for driving their own sales and providing equipment for the workshop.
The opportunity to learn about the body and have the time and expert supervision to practice is invaluable in producing strong, well rounded, and injury free dancers!
Our Dance Education Workshops & Classes are a wonderful opportunity to accelerate the development of your students, learn more about how best to train both young and mature aged dancers, whilst having a whole lot of fun in the process. We offer a unique array of special workshops for dancers to educate them about such areas as turnout, foot control, flexibility and core stability that can be held at your dance school.
All workshops and classes are $250 per hour ($300 with Lisa Howell). One on one private consultations can be arranged at $150 per hour if 2 or more workshops are booked. For all 2 hour workshops, students are required to have the appropriate book. These can be purchased at a 50% discount if the student has not already own the resource. National and International Workshops may incur travel and accommodation expenses in addition to the workshop fees.

During the 3 day course we were up and moving! the studio was charged with energy and everyone was enthusiastic at the discovery of new tools to help their teaching. I have taught ballet for over 25 years both here and overseas and directed my own school, there is always something new to learn and share to help our work and bring the best knowledge to our students. I so enjoy this concept whether you are a young teacher starting out, experienced or teaching in country areas often isolated this is a fabulous way to refresh, network and move forward feeling truly inspired.
As well as learning lots of new things to pass on to my students, I also personally benefited so much from the course! When you told us that many dancers always have their big muscles switched on, I realised that my big back muscles have probably been constantly switched on for about twenty years!!! I have been consciously thinking about switching them off now and feel so much better! So thank you Lisa! Please know that you are an absolute Godsend to the dance world and to all us teachers wanting to take care of and get the best out of our students. Please keep doing what you’re doing!!!
I enjoyed the massive educational component of the course and the positive energy of the teaching! Thank you so much Lisa! I will definitely be adapting my physio practice to incorporate what I have learnt. Thank you for all your advice and guidance over the 3 days. It has been an invaluable experience!
I enjoyed the large number of new ideas, thoughts, and training techniques. There was a great balance between prevention, training and treatment. Lisa is such a lovely educator and I found the course very enjoyable and enlightening! Thanks so much!
Lisa's teaching style is very dynamic and the workshop was so practical and included many different forms of therapy and exercises. I loved the workshop and how Lisa helped with both understanding classical further and the specific control required!
Learn everything they need to know before starting en pointe!
Learn exactly where their turnout muscles are!
Specifically strengthen their hips for all elements of technique!
Get maximum flexibility in record time!
Discover their true core control and help recover from back pain!
Increase their extensions and turnout range!
