Dance Physiotherapy

Our Dance Physiotherapists Indianna Franke and Sarah Kiely apply an evidence-based approach as well as understanding the stressors that the dancer experiences both physically and mentally.


They know that dance has a language of its own and believe it’s important that the treating practitioner can converse in this language.

Both Indi & Sarah are dance teachers in both adult and child populations. They also have experience at the elite and pre-professional level in dance.

Both practitioners are very keen to work closely with teachers, parents and other health practitioners to ensure the dancer can continue to train, dance and possibly perform through their rehabilitation period, as they understand that ‘the show must go on”.

Dance Physiotherapy & Pilates Options

A Full Body Dance Assessment

(including pre-pointe)

This assessment looks from head to toe at dancers who want to improve aspects of their technique, who might want to start pointe work and who are planning auditions or big performances.

It’s a thorough head to toe screening that finds strengths and weaknesses that may contribute to problems with technique or injury.

This assessment helps us tailor a strength and conditioning program that can be supervised in our Physio based Pilates classes or given to do at home. A report can be given to teachers and parents if needed.
