It is an active therapy using different movement concepts to reach the back-to-stage goal more efficiently. Active dance-specific rehabilitation fuses dance-medical rehabilitation elements, athletic training concepts with dance-specific elements.

The ideal training in a semi-private group for the small budget

Well-balanced prevention programs for professional dancers:

Dancers are high-specialised athletes. The demands on body and mind are immense and the daily dance training and rehearsals do only cover part of their physical needs. Prevention programs at fit4performingarts teach active exercises to prepare the dancer optimally for the season; it creates supplemental exercises to prevent injuries.

 


Dancers, periodise your training!

In close collaboration with the dancer an effective training plan including rest periods will be tailored. Sport-scientific knowledge helps to optimise athleticism and aestheticism. The focus at fit4performingarts will be on the athletic part. Tailor-made goals could be the improvement of aerobic and anaerobic conditioning,  management of muscular imbalances, injury prevention, self-management during injuries and periodisation of training. The collaboration with performance diagnosticians might be sought if necessary.
