Nutrition for dancers

Check out Fueling the Dancer from the International Association for Dance Medicine and Science -- a great resource I'm using with the students in class today.  Explains the type of specific nutrition that dancers need and how to sustain energy through a long day of rehearsals and performance.  

The Centre for Dance Nutrition, affiliated with the Atlanta Ballet, has sample meal plans for both female and male dancers who are in pre-professional and professional conditioning programs.

Let me know what you think of these resources... feel free to post a comment!


  1. I love this article! So great as a guide for dancers!

  2. This class inspired me to have half a bagel for breakfast this morning :-)
