Physical therapy designed for dancers, athletes, and you.



SF Performing Arts PT

At SF Performing Arts Physical Therapy, the treatment approach for dancers and other athletic individuals is different. We speak ballet, hip hop, jazz, and ballroom dance (among others). You will be treated by a former professional dancer, who understands your body as a dancer and your specific challenges. Using biomechanical and scientifically informed treatment with our manual therapy, exercise and alignment correction, you will improve in ways you never thought possible. You will work hard, and you will get better. Dancers of all ages and levels are welcome here, and so are their friends and families!
