Dance Assessments

We are excited to be offering Pre-Pointe Shoe Assessments, Tertiary Dance Assessments and General Screening Assessments for dancers.The benefits of dance screening and assessments are to:

  • Ensure optimal musculoskeletal health.
  • Identify individual body characteristics as a baseline for comparison when injuries occur.
  • Facilitate the development of good alignment and technique.
  • Detect risk factors that may impact the dancer’s training at an early stage.
  • Facilitate the development of conditioning programs for the dancer.

These assessments will be conducted by our physiotherapist and dance enthusiast Danica Lang.

Danica has undergone training with Anita Bruce (Physiotherapist, University of South Australia) and Paula Baird-Colt (Body Conditioning Specialist, Australia Ballet).

Danica has participated in calisthenics for over 20 years, and competes in the senior team at Jayde Calisthenic Club (Ballarat) whilst also coaching teams of various ages at Bendigo Calisthenics Club INC.
