Yes, that’s right! Despite the insistence of everyone who has managed to get a sneak preview of it that I should be charging for it,
I wanted to keep it free. I wanted to make sure that there was no barrier to any parent wherever they are in the world,
to be able to access quality information that they can trust, in regards to learning the best ways to assist their children.
This 130 page downloadable e-manual received great praise at the recent International
Association for Dance Medicine and Science (IADMS) conference. A few copies have also been
leaked to the parents of some local dancers. This is what some of them had to say about the book…
“Dear Lisa. Thank you so very much for producing a wonderful tool for dancers and parents
from your many years of working with dance students. Your insights and advice have proved
to be invaluable to our family. Our teenage daughter has, more recently, been struggling
with the many frustrations of ongoing injury coupled with the expectations of her dance school
and the academic expectations of her parents. Your manual has proven to be, not only a fantastic
resource, but an ally for me in bringing up the difficult subjects; Subjects such as the immense
value of good nutrition & the struggle with not always being able to be perfect. Your manual
has clearly and concisely explained how nutrition is so vital in the recovery of ongoing
injury and given us guidelines to follow.
Reading "The Perfect Pointe Parents Manual" has also given me a valuable insight

This again has enabled me to be conscious of the struggles young dancers face and has enabled both
my daughter and I to have extremely proactive discussions.

Thoughtful and practical advice is always welcome when raising children and teenagers,
however, as any parent of a committed dancer or athlete will agree, there are some unique
challenges facing parents of these sometimes driven, perfectionist children.
You have dealt with a wide range of subjects with compassion and empathy but maintained a strong sense of practicality throughout.
Again, we can only say how very appreciative we have been as a family of this marvelous tool.
My daughter has already gained enormously from the invaluable information you have produced
in your serious of short videos. The videos make it simple to get really good information
on the basics such as how to break in a pointe shoe correctly right through to the basic
strengthening exercises all dancers need to prevent injury.” (S.M)
I really am simply concerned at the lack of good information available
to parents of dancers who are totally absorbed by this demanding art.
