We have exclusively teamed up with Pondera Physiotherapy & Pilates (view Melanie and Louise's amazing biographies here) to provide your own 'Personalised Program for Performance Perfection' for student dancers at any age around Australia, at the convenience of my studios!

  • The Pondera Dance Physiotherapist will attend our studios on your demand to watch a 30 minute private lesson with Claudia and the student dancer (co-ordinated by Claudia Dean Coaching)
