Dancer’s Pilates

Pilates helps improve flexibility and muscular endurance, which can aid in reduced risk of injury, improved posture and spinal alignment.  Pilates works the entire body and emphasises biomechanical function and overall health.

If you are a Dancer wanting to gain a competitive edge, improve your strength and flexibility, Pilates will greatly benefit you. Pilates both on the Reformer and Mat focuses greatly on core stabilisation, muscular endurance, peripheral joint stability, balance and coordination.


What are some benefits?

Pilates is a form of movement that concentrates on strengthening the muscles of the body, building core strength and stability, with a focus on our mind body connection. Pilates helps teenagers gain awareness of their body and understand how it works.
