“If only I had found Suzanne and Scolio-Pilates sooner! I danced with a chronic ankle injury for 2+ years, and no amount of physical therapy could fix the nagging pain. It was only after working with Suzanne that my ankle pain resolved permanently. My eyes have been opened to the advantage of understanding the idiosyncrasies of the body as an athlete. Now, I can’t go more than 2 weeks without checking in with Suzanne and working on my alignment!” – SSt

Scolio-Pilates Enhancement Module: Scoliosis and Dancers

Scoliosis and Dancers is an introductory course to bring awareness of scoliosis in the dance community. Scoliosis is a complex three-dimensional deformity of the spine.  Studies have indicated that up to 30% of dancers tested have scoliosis yet the issues associated with scoliosis are rarely addressed in the dance world. The demands of dance require an extreme range of movement placing more stress on a body that is already challenged structurally.  Understanding the inherent structural and muscular imbalances of scoliosis are imperative for medical professionals, teachers, and dancers with scoliosis to make effective choices and create strategies for the life-long management of scoliosis. Scoliosis and Dancers provides scoliosis specific exercises with dance specific cues to build a foundation of core control with neuromuscular integration necessary to combat the compensatory patterns caused by scoliosis.

“After my reconstructive hip surgery, Soliopilates was instrumental in getting me back on stage in even better shape than I was before. As a professional ballet dancer, hip surgery recovery can prove to be very discouraging, however Suzanne made it fun and rewarding. Waking up those seemingly nonexistent ‘baby’ muscles have truly helped me to work correctly going forward and will help prevent future injury. Every day in ballet class I have Suzanne’s sweet voice reminding me of ‘champagne bubbles’ and ‘snugging my curves’! If you want to know more about what that means then take this class!!” – AM

“Working with Suzanne Koucheravy, I have noticed remarkable changes in my scoliosis. As a ballet dancer I feel the Scolio-Pilates has made a huge improvement on my strength in ballet. Working new muscle groups has made a positive effect on my technique and as a result has given me new confidence with my back. I am now more aware of how to correct my posture, both in ballet class and when completing day-to-day activities, which I feel has helped prevent pain I would usually experience and has also reduced the number of injuries in dance I would receive as a result of my curves. The most noticeable improvement with the Scolio-Pilates work is the aesthetic appearance of my back. Because I am now aware of how to correctly align my imbalances, I can see in photographs huge changes in my body which I once thought was impossible.” –  BH, 

“As a dancer with The Washington Ballet, my scoliosis is the one attribute that causes the majority of my difficulties and injuries.  Under Suzanne’s extremely well-trained eyes, I have gained strength and a sense of balance that I have never know before due to the natural imbalances in my body structure.  I leave each session (feeling long and strong) with a new sense of how to balance my spine, as well as with the unique sense of working with someone who puts such a high level of care and passion into my treatment and instruction.” – SSo
