Carolina Rotondo

Health & Wellness Committee, BSc, MPT, Registered Physiotherapist, Certified McKenzie MDT Provider (MICanada)

Since 2010, Carolina has been a past president and a member of Healthy Dancer Canada, a non for profit organization that is the Canadian leader in facilitating communication and collaboration between the dance community and health care professionals in order to enhance the health and well-being of dancers of all ages and genres. As Chair of HDC’s Dancer Screening Committee, she has pioneered the development of a Dancer Screening Tool for health professionals and dance instructors. As part of her extensive experience in performing arts medicine, Carolina has had the immense pleasure of working backstage as an on-site treatment provider for various Broadway and off-Broadway tours that travel to the GTA. In 2016 she and her husband and business partner fulfilled their career dreams of opening a musculoskeletal outpatient clinic in Oakville, focusing on quality rehabilitation and performance. This clinic has allowed her to focus on the development and care of dancers from all levels and genres of dance. 

Carolina is MDT certified. Better known as the Mckenzie Method, it allows her to provide advanced and reliable musculoskeletal assessment and treatment procedures for people suffering with back, neck and extremity pain. In addition, Carolina has gained extensive knowledge and invaluable experience treating acute and post-concussion syndromes, as well as vestibular disorders.

For fun, Carolina loves taking dance classes or working out at the gym. She has enjoyed watching the love of dance and song grow inside her daughter, Isidora. One of her favourite things to do is listen to old vinyl records and dance with Izzy, her baby boy Teo, and her not-so-coordinated husband. Practice makes perfect!
