Health & Wellbeing

Elmhurst Ballet School is proudly committed to the long-term physical and mental health of its young dancers. The Health and Wellbeing Team use an integrated approach to support dancers with being mentally and physically resilient.

The school's large, dedicated team of healthcare practitioners use current scientific research to collaborate closely with the artistic staff. Prevention of injury and illness increases the availability to train, which is precious to the developing dancer.

  • Dance Rehabilitation Coach
  • Physiotherapist
  • School Counsellor
  • Soft Tissue Therapist
  • Strength and Conditioning Coaches
  • Mental Health Nurse
  • Mental Health Nurse for Eating Distress
  • Sports Nutritionist
  • Performance Psychologist

Elmhurst Young Performers Healthcare Scheme

Elmhurst designed and developed the First Health Trust for a school in the UK, this Trust which is managed by the Head of Health and Wellbeing and will allow students to access private medical treatment, should they need it. The Trust can only pay for treatment which has been identified as medically needed by the Health & Wellbeing Centre to support students back to dancing health.
