Ballet Pointe Assessments

Ballet Pointe Assessments are important to ensure you are physically strong and mobile enough to start practicing pointe in ballet. 

At The Physio Bunker, we have developed a comprehensive pointe assessment to ensure you or your child is ready to go onto pointe.

In the pointe assessment, we will look at things like:

Our pointe assessment is comprehensive and you do not need to “pass” every single aspect of it. We screen for extra things to ensure you don’t come up against problems when you do start going onto pointe. If any extra things pop up we will give you ways to address them early.

If we feel there is still work to be done prior to you commencing pointe, we will write you a specific program to ensure you can come back within the next 3-6 weeks and be deemed safe to commence pointe. 

We treat many dancers and dance-related injuries at The Physio Bunker, so if you need assistance, please book an appointment with one of our physiotherapists in Birtinya or Maroochydore!
