Just like an athlete, the movement artist must navigate incredible physical and mental challenges.
Just like an athlete, the movement artist requires copious amounts of adaptability and preparation.
Just like an athlete, managing setbacks, staying consistent with self-care and building capacity will be a part of your process.
DANCERS MUST TRAIN TO DANCE, AND NOT ONLY RELY ON DANCING ALONE TO TRAIN.

EVERYTHING WE DO...
"It was so refreshing to go to DANCE|PREHAB."
"As a dancer, it is so difficult to find physical therapists that understand everything that goes into dancing. I love being able to work on exercises that directly correlate with dance movements, as well as having effortless conversations about translating what we work on in therapy into the studio."
"Don't walk, but run to DANCE|PREHAB."
"What a wealth of knowledge I've learned about my body and specific tools to help myself. Performing through the pain has been my reality for so long and focusing on keeping this body healthy has been invaluable."
Lani Y. | Akram Khan Company
"I felt cared for, listened to,
and understood by Dr. Tsai."
"After four years with chronic lower back pain from a traumatic injury, I have finally found a physical therapist that has successfully guided me to find consistent progression in the healing process..."
"Rob has helped me so much with recovering from my hip injury."
"When I first came to him I was in so much pain and he has helped me work through it. I’m now back to dance full time and I’m also getting stronger..."
Ivy L. | Academy of Ballet Arts
"It's been unbelievably refreshing to not be chained down to old injuries and train with new intentions."
I have endless gratitude for Rob and his mentorship in my life. My past training had always been framed around how to prevent further injury of my hip, and I never even thought to think bigger."
Lexi Z. | Chapman University
"DANCE|PREHAB has furthered knowledge of my body, revealing new ways of thinking and moving
... that has increased my body awareness as I dance. I am especially grateful for the specificity provided to work towards my future goals as both a dancer and a human.”
Erin P. | Westside Dance Project &
Dmitri Kulev Classical Ballet Academy
"You were respectful, gentle, and motivating!
In the past, I have experienced physiotherapists looking down upon a dancer's education, not realizing the amount of knowledge their body does carry. Thank you for all that you offer..."

At DANCE|PREHAB, we are committed to creating spaces for learning, application, and accountability to support movement artist resilience and longevity.
Our mission is to redefine the experience of care for movement artists.
As former and current dance educators, we have all witnessed the transforming power of movement in our students. Our professional titles may be different, but we are educators as heart.
At DANCE|PREHAB, let's cultivate a healing process to inform and build your human potential and capabilities to extend into your artistry.
"If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.
"Movement is an experience, and experiences inform the mover."
No matter where you are in your dance artistry, your rehab process, or your prehab & cross training journey, movement continues to be the language we all speak.
Meaningful and purposeful movement translates into meaningful and purposeful experiences, which can only continue to inform our daily lives, no matter how we choose to move.
