Sugarfoot Therapy is a revolutionary injury prevention conditioning program created by Doctor of Physical Therapy, Nicholas Cutri, and professional dancer/choreographer, Katie Schaar. Used by dancers and dance educators worldwide, Sugarfoot Therapy brings the exercises of sports physical therapy to dancers. When practiced regularly, these exercises are scientifically proven to help prevent the occurrence of injuries.

If you are a competitive dancer frustrated by repeated injuries, a dance teacher frustrated by having injured dancers sitting out, or a professional dancer who fears the impact an injury could have on your income… this program is for you.

Most orthopedic dance injuries are overuse injuries caused by a repeated movement pattern that places continued stress on a tissue over a period of time. Injuries manifest over time as pain, inflammation, stiffness, weakness, and tissue damage as a result of inefficient dance technique and/or lack of effective cross training. Sugarfoot Therapy provides an easy-to-implement cross training program for dancers, designed by a Doctor of Physical Therapy and backed by research-based evidence.
