Fit4performingarts Angélique Keller - The stage is your world - your health and fitness is my concern

Thank you for joining me here today!  I have founded Fit4performingarts Angélique Keller in 2018 with the aim to improve the health and fitness of dancers, dance pedagogues, choreographers and dance companies. For this reason, I have developped tailored training programs to help dancers with their health and fitness. I do also act as a presenter and workshop leader on sports- and dance-scientific topics and offer consultations for individual dancers or dance companies.

It is my utter belief to put the dancer as a human being into the limelight and take care of him/her with lots of humour and heart.

In my childhood, different kinds of sport activities, artistic practice and dance were omnipresent.I participated in track and field athletics as a sprinter and long-jumper, played hand- as well as volleyball, taught myself how to juggle and loved to express myself through dance. This multitude of movement practice helped me in my MSc sport science university degree. As a physical education teacher I taught different sports to different age groups. 

 

In addition to my sport scientific background I attended different dance lessons in Basle and London (Jazz dance, contemporary dance, ballet, tap dance and ballroom dance). Only in 2003 during a sabbatical year, did I decide to deepen my interest in dance and completed a one-year degree at the Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance in London. It was there where I discovered Pilates as a useful and efficient supplementary training for dancers.

In my professional life as a sport therapist at the Schulthess Klinik Zürich (Swiss Olympic centre) between 2010-2018 I was able to combine sport scientific knowledge and dance with therapeutic input in group sessions as well as in 1:1 treatment settings. Besides sport therapeutic care of athletes in the water as well as on land I have specialised on dance-medical rehabilitation and functional training for performing artists. The "back-to-stage" process is a common and creative yet strenuous process. My MAS Dance Science degree helps me to combine scientific knowledge with the practical application.

 

As a tutor for J&S instructors (youth and sports), sport science students and sport therapists, it is my challenge to deliver theoretical knowledge and practical movement in a methodological, didactical and pedagogical skilful way.

 

 

I am looking forward to finding and creating individual solutions for you in a professional manner.

Don't hesitate, book an individual training session with me already today.
