Before dancers commence pointe work, we recommend that dance teachers and parents bring their children to do a pre-pointe assessment.
It has been Susie’s pleasure to do hundreds of Pre Pointe assessments for students over many years.
Susie assesses spinal and foot alignment, hip and ankle/foot muscle strength and joint mobility in order to determine a young dancer’s risk of injury and suitability for pointe work.
Our aim is to provide professional assessment of alignment and strength, that allow safe pressure through growth plates in the bones and developing lower limb tissues. This will ensure that dancers moving to the next level are well prepared and can focus on any areas that may need to be improved.
