Introduction to our New Zoom Workshops

and Mentoring Programme

Juon Pointe is now able to offer three Zoom workshops, each followed by a mentoring programme to be worked through and achieved. The aim of these is to explore anatomy and the strength and technique required to be able to dance on pointe safely.

Due to lock down restrictions and the online nature of this workshop, the day and time are completely open to what works best for the dancers. Simply call and discuss a suitable time!

It is very exciting to be able to provide this online version of a workshop that I have presented in-person for more than 25 years. The workshop is structured to provide best international standard practice of dance health and well-being knowledge to young dancers, either in small groups or one-on-one.  The dancers can be confident about their biomechanics and be aware of any issues that could, in the future, become injuries.

First Zoom Workshop $75.00
We look at anatomy, structure and function of the lower limbs, and I tailor this knowledge to the needs of the attendees. Your young dancer preparing for pointe or already on pointe would love this! We can review current knowledge and really investigate ways to improve strength and technique by providing some basic foot and ankle exercises.

Second Zoom Workshop $75.00
Insight into how non-weight bearing exercises translate back into ballet class and pointe work. We will also learn how to tape the feet and can compare a taped with an un-taped foot! Additional exercises too!

Third Zoom Workshop $75.00
Explores all the other issues that support good pointe work - strong turnout, core stability, inside leg strength, 90 demi-pointe of the big toe, 180 ankle extension and other issues that need to be addressed in order to be successful on pointe.

Mentoring Programmes: $30.00 per session (58 sessions needed)
The one-on-one mentoring programme is a great way to provide detailed care and support of what was explored on the course. The dancers love the extra attention offered to them when I visit them online once a week. We go through the work laid out in the course and monitor increasing strength from daily exercises done correctly! Regular emails will provide feedback to the dancer on how they are progressing and new goals to be achieved. This provides the opportunity to support each dancer into taking personal responsibility for their own development.

If you would like to join me for any of these workshops, or if I can help in any other way, please let me know.
