At the Colorado Conservatory of Dance, we place the highest value on our dancers' health and well-being. Our in-house Wellness Center provides students with exceptional care for body and mind. In our fully-equipped Karen Shanley Pilates Studio, dancers can strengthen their structure and technique by cross-training in Pilates working with a physical therapist to recover from an injury. Massage and other body treatments rebalance and rejuvenate body and spirit, and counseling provides students with support through all parts of their lives. With affordable rates and special discounts for students, the CCD Wellness Center ensures a full complement of supportive services for our entire community.

Evolved from concepts and movement techniques created by Joseph H. Pilates more than 80 years ago, the Pilates Method dramatically improves core strength, flexibility, coordination, and posture. It creates a body with elongated muscles, flat abdominals, and a strong back. With systematic practice of specific exercises coupled with focused breathing, the participant gains improved body awareness, balance in muscle strength and flexibility. By improving body awareness, alignment and range of motion at joints, practicing Pilates alleviates pain and injuries and rebalances the body from the physical stresses of dancing or everyday life. Private sessions focus on the individual's needs, making Pilates ideal for people of all ages, fitness levels, and physical conditions.

Massage is an incredible tool for releasing muscle tension and restoring balance to the muscular and skeletal systems. It has been shown to speed up the body's natural recovery process, prevent injuries, and aid in the healing process of minor soft tissue injuries.
Therapeutic massage (available for adults 18 years and older) are a great way to rebalance your body, address long-standing muscular tension and pain, or just completely relax while your little ones are in class.
Sports / Dancer Massage focuses on specific areas of concern for the dancer, addressing injury and imbalance by warming the body up for class/rehearsal, increasing range of motion in joints, and loosening muscle adhesion. Sessions include assisted stretching and active participation from the client. Clients should wear comfortable clothes that are easy to move in.

It's a place to share thoughts and feelings, obtain support from fellow dancers, and learn new skills to help move forward.
Meetings will be Thursdays in the CCD Wellness Center.

At CCD, we have several on site physical therapists who work closely with students of all ages and their families to build the strongest, healthiest dancers possible. As part of their dance education, students are encouraged to meet regularly with a physical therapist not only to rehabilitate, but to prevent injuries from happening, increase flexibility and mobility, and to keep dancers happy and healthy.
This service is offered to current CCD students and their families. Physical therapists are in studio year-round to support CCD dancers of all ages.
