Who to See When Your Body Needs Support: Health Resources for Dancers

This list of health care providers has been compiled in part with the help of dance companies in the Bay Area who provided recommendations, with additions from Dancers’ Group. It is neither complete, nor is it an endorsement of any of the practitioners listed. Official dance medicine programs exist at St. Francis Center for Sports Medicine in San Francisco and Walnut Creek as well as the Healthy Dancers’ Clinic in San Francisco (associated with the University of California, San Francisco). The practitioners below are found in group or individual practices. Please use this list as a starting point.

St. Francis Center for Sports Medicine in SF and Walnut Creek offers a dance medicine package for uninsured dancers. This includes a one-time $25 fee for one doctor visit (consultation), which may also include a quick visit with Pilates instructor or physical therapist. Additional Pilates sessions are available through the uninsured dancer program at the following rates: one-hour private, $220/5 sessions; duet, $130/5 sessions. For more information or to schedule a session please call 415-353-6410.
