Once again SPHC are proud to be involved with the Redcliffe CSTD Born to Perform festival. We have sponsored the event for over 11 years now and continue to see it go from strength to strength!
The C.S.T.D. Born to Perform Dance Festivals are among the longest running festivals in Australia. Each festival is held in the June/July school holidays giving hundreds of dancers a 10-12 day event to show off their skills in an exciting and friendly environment. The festivals cater for all age groups from toddlers to mature age students and cover all dance genres with sections for solos, duos, trios, and groups. Separate group items cater for Primary and Secondary Schools with Melbourne and Brisbane including a Special Needs School group section. A Betty Tilley Memorial Award is provided at each festival with the recipient given the chance to travel to Kuala Lumpur to compete in the Asia Pacific Competition. This award is to acknowledge Mrs Tilley’s work in Asia establishing examinations and competitions on Comdance’s behalf. Celebrities in the entertainment industry who have honed their skills at the Comdance Festivals include Talia Fowler, Jack Chambers, Kelly Abbey and Thomas Lacey to name a few. Run by Comdance organisers, the festivals are open to dancers from every dance society.
Dance Physio, Pilates, Screenings and Assessments
At SPHC we help dancers prevent and recover from injuries, and offer assessments, screenings and Pilates. Read More>>
Dance, especially ballet, is a very specialised sport. Therefore, when a dancer gets injured they need specific treatment. The foot, ankle, hip and back are areas commonly injured amongst the dancing population and accurate, early assessment, diagnosis and treatment is vital.
Having a background in dance qualifications and training to treat dance specific injuries are essential elements you should be looking for in your Physiotherapist. Improper and delayed rehabilitation of injuries can hamper a dancers’ ability to return to performing. And because we share your passion for dance we know that’s the last thing you want.
