About AZDM

Education and Community Service Dance Therapy

About Dr. Alexis and how AZDM got started:

By 2016, there were too many clients for me to continue making house and studio calls, so I got a small treatment space of about 150 sqft in central Phoenix. In 2017, the building my space was in caught on fire…twice. So I moved to a 250 sqft space in 2018 in east Phoenix. Client demand continued to grow  and we moved in to a 55o sqft space just eight months after our last move!
Then teachers started reaching out to me looking for the best exercises for dancers or advice about guiding an injured dancer through recovery. So I started creating training programs for dance educators, combining my knowledge of dance instruction (I’m a dance teacher too, don’t think I mentioned that.) with my body and movement knowledge as a physical therapist.  In 2018 I rebranded the company from ANS Fitness and Physical Therapy to reach the community that I am passionate about helping, the community that I’ve been in and loved for over 20 years.
We now are in a 1350 sqft space that includes a treatment area and dance space where we provide movement analysis, dance coaching and educational workshops. In 2019, we also expanded and have adopted a sister company, AZ DancemED which focuses solely on education and professional development for the dance community.
Looking toward a bigger and brighter future, we are now AZ Dance Medicine Specialists. and we are here to help you dance your best yet. ”
