Dr. Lisa Ellis' advanced extension program for talented and dedicated dancers
Dr. Lisa Ellis is a pioneer in worldwide jazz technique. With a focus on injury prevention, she teaches dancers to love themselves and celebrate the incredible feats their bodies are able to perform.
As well as running her DANCE PRESCRIPTION program based in Melbourne, Australia, Dr. Lisa tours nationally and internationally with her Just What The Doctor Ordered Workshops. These popular masterclasses focus on understanding the anatomy, psychology and physiology of dance in order to fast track dancers' successes in a supportive and encouraging environment.
When she's not working closely with the youth of today, Dr. Lisa Ellis can be found working full time as a doctor at a metropolitan Melbourne hospital.
The Lab Assistants
Dr. Lisa handpicks dancers she trains through her DANCE PRESCRIPTION program to accompany her at her Just What The Doctor Ordered Workshops. These Assistants get flown around the world by Dr. Lisa to meet different dance communities and inspire and connect with dancers from all backgrounds.
The current Just What The Doctor Ordered assistants are Prawn, Alien Baby Face, Indiana Jones, KittyCat, Olaf, Peaches. The current "Interns" (assistants in training) are Sweet Pea and Nugget.
THE HOME COUNTRY.
Dr. Lisa Ellis travels all over the great country Down Under every week to deliver her Just What The Doctor Ordered Workshops. Cities visited so far in 2017 include Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide, Hobart, Albury and of course Melbourne.
