We regularly welcome dancers into our studio for pilates conditioning to help strengthen their dance technique or to assist in recovering from injury. Pilates helps build body awareness by allowing dancers to connect with their body in a way that is different from dance. Pilates focuses on the mind-body connection and the subtle ways we can develop stronger control over joints and muscles. We use visualisation, breath, assisted stretching, bands and springs to gently load muscles, and props and equipment to guide alignment and help dancers feel correct placement. Pilates can help decrease the risk of injury by improving biomechanics especially through the foot, ankle and knee, and can give better power and coordination in dance movements through increased core strength and control.

Our teachers are highly trained and many are also experts in dance, having previously danced or taught professionally. As the Pilates Instructor to the Queensland Ballet, Catherine Neal is involved at the professional level as well as regularly training younger dancers both in our studio and off site at dance studios. We also have a number of ex-professional dancers and qualified ballet teachers on our staff, and all of our teachers regularly work with young dancers, dance teachers and adult dancers in the studio.
