Shawl anderson dance center in Alcatraz just above college has two Pilates classes- they are for anyone, but many dancers take these classes. Suzanne Martin, who teaches on Saturday mornings, was a dance professor and now is a physical therapist who works with many dancers, including professional ballet dancers. I believe Patricia Banchik, who teaches at BBT, teaches the weekday Pilates class. Your daughter can likely talk privately with either teacher to get specific tips for how the work in class relates to her ballet practice.

The Conservatory of Classical Ballet in San Leandro (right off 580 at the Dutton Ave exit) has a Thursday afternoon Pilates class for ballet dancers.
