Your Body, Your Tool, Your Career is a 150-page ebook (PDF format) with active links to over 190 educational videos that support and further explain the concepts in the chapters.
It’s updated with the latest research and is the ideal resource for any dancer preparing for full-time dance education or a professional career in the industry.

The dance and performance industry is more demanding than ever – so educate yourself and don’t let your body be the thing that holds you back!
This manual was inspired and developed from my own experiences earning a living as a dancer, and the related injuries that I faced along the way. After subsequently retiring from professional dancing, I became a qualified physio and personal trainer. I learned how to rehabilitate and strengthen my own body so I could still dance and perform for pleasure. After 20 years of working in the health and fitness industry, and treating dancers in my physio clinic, I want to pass on my knowledge to you.
If you were a race car driver you would need to ensure the vehicle’s engine, body, and fuel performed at their best to ensure you finish and even win, time and time again. As a dancer, your body is the tool of your trade. The success and longevity of your career depend on how well your body functions, repairs, looks, and moves – you are the driver of your vehicle.
I hope this manual will give enough information and inspiration for you to be your own personal trainer, to help you produce the best machine you can, enabling a long and injury-free career in dance!
