New Patient
Information

Dancers push the limits of physical performance and creative expression every day. Our team is equipped to go beyond standard health and personal training practice to deliver services uniquely tailored to the concerns and needs of dancers.

Our goal is to help every dancer across the spectrum of age, ability, and dance discipline reach their highest potential.

We are happy to meet the needs of new patients!

Below you should find answers to frequently asked questions.  If you have any questions that we have not answered here, please contact us at info@carolinadancerwellness.org

Schedule and Paperwork

Scheduling your appointment is easy and can be done through the Online Scheduler.  A patient portal will be created for you to schedule future appointments and complete paperwork. 

The paperwork will be emailed to you after you create your patient portal and schedule your first appointment.  If the patient is a minor, the health history, dance/activity history, and injury information can be completed by the dancer or a parent/guardian.  The HIPAA/Consent to Treat forms must signed prior to the appointment by a parent/guardian if the patient is under 18 years old.

Dancers We Work With

We treat a wide variety of dancers.  The majority are classical ballet and contemporary dancers, but we also work with tap dancers, Highland dancers, Irish dancers, classical Indian dancers, and Broadway dancers to name a few.   Our clients are early adolescents, young adults, middle-aged, and senior dancers and range from individuals who enjoying dance as a recreational activity to high-level professional dancers.

Non-Dancers

We are often approached by non-dancers who have heard about our high-quality services.  We are happy to work with everyone, and have created Movement Arts Physical Therapy to serve our non-dancer clients.

Insurance and Self-Pay Options

We are in-network with BlueCross BlueShield and Cigna for physical therapy services.  You can submit your insurance information through the Insurance Portal and we will be happy to verify your coverage and benefits.  

 

For patients who opt to pay out of pocket we offer appointments on an individual basis or as part of a discounted 10-visit package.  Contact us or visit the “Purchase” page of the website for more details.

Pricing and Fees 

As a non-profit, it is our mission to provide accessible services to dancers.  For this reason we offer discounted services that are below general outpatient rates for self-paying patients.  Additional discounts are available through purchasing packages or storing a card-on-file in your patient portal for individual visit payments.  If you use insurance, the rates are set by your insurance provider.

For patients with financial needs, we do offer financial assistance.  Contact our office to request an application.

Your First Appointment

Your first appointment will last about 1 hour.  Please make sure that you have completed the paperwork that was emailed when you scheduled your appointment.
 

An additional COVID-19 Screening Form will be emailed 4 hours prior to your scheduled appointment time.  Please also make sure to complete this form before coming into the office.  This form must be completed for every appointment you attend. 

Once you arrive, you will check in using our contactless system.  This can be done using the QR code in the waiting room or the link on our homepage.   This will let the staff know you have arrived.

We ask that patients who are being seen for hip or knee injuries please wear or bring shorts to their appointments.  All other patients can wear comfortable exercise or dance clothing.
