Bronwyn has 15 years experience working as a physiotherapist in the musical theatre and circus industries both internationally and within Australia. Bronwyn is both a dance physiotherapist and vocal physiotherapist.
She has been Company Physiotherapist for several shows including the world premiere Melbourne season of King Kong, CATS touring throughout Australasia, High School Musical, Wicked (Brisbane season) and the internationally reknowned Franco Dragone production of The House of Dancing Water in Macau.
She has extensive circus arts experience providing physiotherapy to the Cirque du Soleil productions of Quidam, Saltimbanco and Corteo.
Bronwyn’s interest and skills in the performing arts stem from dancing and local amateur dramatics throughout childhood; and then a Bachelor of Arts in Dance at QUT(1988) led to dancing with an educational dance company and several independent contemporary dance shows. To complete her already large skill set, she then trained as a physiotherapist at La Trobe University, Victoria.
Bronwyn has had specific Vocal Unloading (vocal physiotherapy) training and has experience treating and managing Muscle Tension Dysphonia, throat pain syndromes and the performance voice. In addition she has a particular interest in the breathing and thoracic cage aspects of voice.
Bronwyn has a very hands-on physiotherapy approach to treatment and her management has a strong education focus to empower her patients. She has been a Clinical Pilates practitioner since 1992 when she started teaching Pilates at Dance Medicine Australia whilst studying physiotherapy. Therefore, her extensive Clinical Pilates knowledge completes her injury management and rehabilitation skill set.
Being a part of the fabulous Performance Medicine team is a perfect way to be settled in marvellous Melbourne!
