Ballet research to optimise performance

Whilst I was a physiotherapy student at La Trobe University, I was always impressed with the focus on excellence in research and staying at the forefront of sport and exercise innovation and discovery.

As a graduate and proud alumni, I am so excited to learn that La Trobe will be collaborating with one of our country’s premier dance companies, The Australian Ballet Company.

The medical team at the ABC are world leaders in dance injury research and injury prevention. They have a proven impressive track record in injury prevention and continue to be ahead of the game in applying elite sports medicine principles in a dance and performance setting. I am looking forward to seeing this professional partnership grow with the aim to optimise dancer performance and recovery, and help us gain new insights into the prevention of dance related-injuries.
