Bradley is a physiotherapist who has a clinical interest in dance injuries and high performance dance conditioning.
Bradley began dancing from an early age, traversing his way up the Cecchetti syllabus to Advanced 1. Whilst training, Bradley developed a flare for acrobatics in dancing, naturally leading him to train with Canadian based Acrobatic Arts and becoming a certified Acrodance teacher. During his degree at La Trobe University, Bradley had the opportunity to take part in an internship with The Australian Ballet medical team where he learnt from the physiotherapists working with the dancers during their 2016 season of Alice in Wonderland and Balanchine’s Symphony In C.
In Brad’s primary place of practice he works with elite adolescent dancers through injury to high performance with some of his clients being accepted into the Australian Ballet School, San Francisco Ballet School and Houston Ballet Academy to name a few.
Professional highlights include working as research assistant on a study investigating the hip mechanics of professional ballet dancers using state of the art motion capture technology; as well as being selected as a finalist for the 2019 International Association of Dance Medicine & Science (IADMS) Infographic Competition for a piece titled ’Turning the tables on turnout’.
In his spare time Bradley enjoys bouldering (indoor rock climbing), getting lost in a good book and enjoying a night out at the ballet (of course!).
