Dance Physiotherapy – Because Knowledge is Power and Prevention is Better than Cure! 


At Performance Medicine we understand that the show must go on!

We actively encourage all dancers and performers to come and work with us for prevention strategies.


The physio and massage team at Performance Medicine have worked within the industry for over a decade. There is not much we don’t know when it comes to the performing arts.  We love to ensure dancers and performers enjoying and feeling their best as the show goes on!


All of our therapists have experience working with dance schools and their students. Our physiotherapists present workshops about injury prevention, performance optimisation, and work with dancers at all stages of their career. You can expect a thorough assessment, individualised treatment program and most importantly an injury prevention program. Together with targeted prevention programs and performance protocols our physiotherapy team is here to  support dancers and performers.


With many years of experience working with professional dance shows in Australia and supporting companies and producers, we understand the legislative requirements and nuances within the Australian marketplace. We work closely with dancers, teachers, choreographers, company managers and producers to look at every element to optimise a safe environment. We ensure that dancers are given the best conditions to deliver the performance of a lifetime. We’ll provide preventative advice and education around costumes, footwear, stage position and more to minimise the risk of injury.


Inviting all dancers, whether you’re a novice dance enthusiast or a professional performer – Get in touch and visit us in the clinic for a detailed assessment and/or a postural assessment to create a bespoke program for you.
