NEW ZEALAND DANCE COMPANY VISITS JUON POINTE

NZ DANCE CO

It was wonderful when the company bus stopped opposite our studio in Waipawa on their way down to Wellington. The dancers all came to our studio for a foot workshop.

We presented them with a Power Point presentation about the anatomy of the foot and then shared exercises with them to strengthen the feet, explored taping of the toes and feet for training purposes and gave one dancer a foot joint mobilisation treatment.

It was amazing to work with these wonderful dancers and we hope to do so again sometime in the future.

Foot Joint Mobilisation Course with Maree Gifkins 

This course was a wonderful opportunity to gain more knowledge about the bones of the feet and a great deal to add to our work with feet and Pointe Shoes. . Esther and Jackie were joined by Lisa Gordeno from Sydney and Ruth Swinney from Paraparaumu at our National Pointe Shoe fitting Centre in Waipawa. The course lasted four days and as it was practical we got our own feet treated. There was also a lot of theory and at the end of the course, we all passed our final exam and are now allowed to practice this new skill. Visit www.FootJointMobile.co.nz  for more information.
