A dance-scientific based test battery for professional dancers or vocational dance students. Get feedback about your strengths and weaknesses and receive training considerations. Test your flexibility, balance, vertical jump height and do a dance-specific aerobic test to measure your cardio-vascular capacity. If requested a physiocheck can be booked, too.
Actice and passive external rotation (AR) in the hip:
Many studies show correlations between compensated turn-out and injury prevalence in dancers (Grossmann et al., 2008). Is the difference between passive and active external rotation in the hip too big, it may lead to overuse syndroms in feet, knee, hip as well as the back. Joints, ligaments, tendons and muscles will additionally be stressed in this case. The turn-out is determined by the bone structure, the set-up of ligaments and muscle balances. Get your passive and active external rotation tested in order to avoid imbalances.

Test your cardio-vascular capacity with the help of scientifivally validated test. The five-step Dance Aerobic Fitness Test (DAFT) has been invented by experts of the Dance Science field from Trinity Laban as well as the Wolverhampton University and can easily be done at your studio with my competent help. Get in contact with me if you are interested in such a test.
Measure jump parameters:
Measure your vertical jump height and compare your right side to the left side. Determine also your jump endurance in multiple jumps.
