In line with the School’s philosophy to maximise ability; to produce thinking artists who are healthy in body and mind, and students who emerge fully prepared to fulfil their potential, the Training Programme includes world-class health and welfare systems which focus on supporting the physical, emotional and mental health needs of students.
As part of the School’s commitment to student care, all students have access to group education and individual assistance with injury prevention and management, healthy nutrition along with emotional and physical well-being. Students are encouraged to request assistance from the health team for a variety of reasons such as:
- to maintain general physical and emotional health
- to improve physical fitness and conditioning for dance
- to avoid and/or treat injury
- to improve the mental aspect of dance performance
- to design personalised nutrition plans which maximise energy output and help maintain the lean, athletic body shape required of classical ballet dancers
