Health and Wellness

Our dancers have active lifestyles. 

As a result, we have carefully chosen health and wellness professionals who understand the demands on young developing dance students. Conditioning, massage and physical therapy, nutrition, and injury prevention programs focus on keeping our students healthy. Programs include the following:

Bigger. Better. Faster. Stronger movement. CPYB Conditioning* improves a dancer’s technique and performance by strengthening the body’s core muscles. Individually designed, semi-private workout regimes with tailored exercises for young women and young men make use of select Pilates equipment. CPYB Conditioning helps the dancer understand their body, focusing on their strengths, their limits, and areas needing muscle development. The result is more lift without tension, deeper pliés, higher jumps with less effort, tighter turns, and improved extension with better lines. Cost: $31 per session. Sessions begin Tuesday, September 11.  SIGN UP
