Robin van Rijgersma – manual and dansante therapist
“After my dance studies at the National Ballet Academie and Jazz Theater Show-musical school in Amsterdam, I taught for several years dance-classes in Italy, Germany and Fuerte Ventura. After doing that for more than 15 years, I wanted to take a next step and I begun my study to became a physical therapist. After my bachelor I studied for Manual Therapist in the Egg-shell method.
Recently I have begun to teach Dansante Fysiotherapie classes. With these classes I can combine my two biggest passions: Dance and physical therapy. I help people with physical complaints to move better and hereby recover from their injury in a save manner.
The human body is amazing. But when the body of a dancer or someone who uses his /her body to create art fails because of an injury, it’s good to know someone that understands. Who understands the demands, possibilities and restrictions of a dancers body and who understands how important it is to keep on performing.
My mission therefore is it to help dancers and others who use their body professionally to recover from their injuries with a minimum amount of time without being able to dance or move.”
