  1. A while ago DD’s associate teacher mentioned that she had ‘undue tension in her shoulder line’. We weren’t really sure what this meant, but I had observed that she had a tendency to raise her shoulders if she felt at all uncomfortable or anxious (it’s a family trait - my shoulders are always really tense and knotty). So she has focused on relaxing them and keeping them down. Nothing more has been said about it, and her usual ballet teachers haven’t mentioned anything. However, watching her practice at home today, I definitely noticed a lopsided look to her shoulders, with the right one held slightly higher than the left. This affects her arms too, so they also look misaligned in certain positions. I tried to help her relax the right shoulder by massaging it very lightly - and she seemed in lots of pain from the lightest touch, and it definitely feels knotty. She has a vocational school final audition for Y7 entry in a few weeks and we’re now worried this will count against her. Is there anything we can do to help? I have no idea what has caused it, but given the associate teacher’s previous comment I get the idea now that it may be a longer term issue rather than a recent injury.
  2. Could anyone advise me of a physiotherapist that does assessments to check suitability for ballet as my daughter is considering vocational school next year. I am in the South West but would be willing to travel if necessary. Thanks in advance.
  3. Looking for recommendations for a good sports therapist in London-ideally somebody who is used to treating dancers. I already have a fantastic dance physio in London & great local physio at home but am looking for a sports therapist who will be able to give a good massage to help release muscle tension. Would be very grateful for any suggestions!
  4. I picked this article up while culling the links this morning. The Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in London has closed its specialist dance injury clinic at short notice. https://www.artsprofessional.co.uk/news/shock-closure-specialist-dance-injury-clinic
  5. Hello all, my son injured his hip in his JA class yesterday. He ‘heard’ a sound, then excruciating pain, then pins and needles hip to thigh for a few seconds. Dance teacher checked it and he carried on with class unable to do pirouettes, developpes, grand battements. Teacher didn’t tell me, he did about two hours after we got home. Today it is tight, but no big pain, just twinges if I press in. He has his preliminary audition for MA/WL on Sunday, I am at a complete loss as to know how to proceed with this next week, dance classes, daily exercises etc. audition attendance. Sorry for my ignorance, all I know for sure is I want him to be ok, I don’t care about the audition, he does obviously 🙄, but is there anything I should be doing other than making sure he rests up?? How long before he goes back to class etc, next class his on Tuesday afternoon. Should I let RBS know. I also as an aside feel really upset that the teacher didn’t let me know. 😔 Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated, I don’t want to make any mistakes as it’s his hip and dancing is his absolute passion. Thankyou.
  6. Hi everyone, I wonder if anyone can help please. My daughter has injured her groin and needs to see a specialist dance physio. We would normally see the brilliant physio team at Tring Park where she is a CBA student. However they have broken up for the summer. Does anyone have any personal recommendations for us please. We live in Hertfordshire but London or anywhere within a hours travel would be ok. Thanks so much.
  7. Hi, my daughter has been advised to have a specialist dance Physio consult about her legs. She is hypo-extended and I think the rationale is to see her actual capabilities. We live Sheffield area but happy to commute up 1-2 hours. Thanks in advance 😃
  8. Hello! I'm new here. I have browsed through the contents. My dd is 9. She has applied for the associates at RBS, Tring and Cecchetti last year, and got swl for RBS and yes for both the other two. This year we tried Elmhurst, who said no, and we're trying the RBS junior associates and we will see how that goes. Reading through many posts, I've come across this idea of flat turnout and physio assessments. Since she'd really like to dance at a serious level, I've been looking into how to get a dance physiotherapist to evaluate her physical potential, as other parents have done. I must be a bit slow with this googling business, as I haven't been able to find what I need yet. She's not injured, and most places seem to be for injuries, and ask what kind of treatment we want in the form to request an appointment. How have you found someone to evaluate your dd? Any recommendations? We can get to either London or Birmingham easily. Thanks!
  9. I’m looking for recommendations for a physio with dance as a speciality in the north west. Does anyone have any experience? TIA
