Physical Therapy

Physical therapy services to avert and treat injuries are available to students enrolled in all full-time programs.  Injuries are evaluated by one of our physical therapists, who will advise on how to manage the injury and/or modify activity.  More serious injuries are referred to a physician for additional treatment.  These services offer an excellent opportunity for dancers to learn about their own bodies.

  • Lower and upper extremity bikes
  • Treadmills
