CHANGING HIGH PERFORMANCE CULTURE
PERFORMANCE FOR DANCE COMPANIES
Nurturing an Elite Performance Culture on evidence-based Science
Healthcare for dancers is a crucial topic for dance companies as requirements for professional dancers are constantly increasing. It has been the topic of the World Health Organization for many years, to create a paradigm shift away from rehabilitation towards improved performance – leaving the „curing the symptoms method“ and aiming at „getting to the root of the problem and eliminating it“.
We strongly believe and promote the idea of high performance being the best preventative strategy. Company directors that are leaders and want to go all the way to top level leadership truly care about holistic and complementary approaches towards elite physicality, artistry and personal development of their trusted employees and collaborators.
We are aiming at companies that are willing to replace what is not working with something better instead of trying to fix what is not working. Being able to rely on tried and tested as well as scientifically validated methodologies will give directors the confidence to create the future of dance performance.
Incorporating a complete system where the pillars of elite level performance, prevention and rehabilitation go hand in hand is the future – and the future is NOW.
