Nourish The Healthy Dancer®
Designed for The Healthy Dancer® wanting to maintain their sustainable relationship with food and body.
To balance performance nutrition with a non-diet lifestyle, we must recognize the tenth principle of intuitive eating: gentle nutrition. Gentle nutrition enables us to make choices that support our physical health in addition to our mental and emotional well-being. In this online self-study course, dancers learn how to integrate the fundamentals of nutrition science and performance nutrition in a non-obsessive way.
In this self-study course, dancers learn how to utilize performance nutrition in a gentle and supportive way.

A holistic approach to nutrition for dancers is a topic that I’ve been asked a lot about recently. Your relationship with food doesn’t have to be obsessive or compulsive. Dancers can learn how to utilize food as a tool that supports their whole selves: mind, body, and soul. Dancers will discover how to utilize food as a tool to support performance and health. An integrative approach that balances intuitive eating with performance nutrition enables dancers to heal their relationships with both food and body.
Did you know that dancers are three times more likely to struggle with an eating disorder when compared to the general population? Because of the vulnerable nature of dancers to perfectionism, disordered eating, and eating disorders, it’s critical that dancers, dance educators, and dance parents rely on sound sources for nutrition-, weight- and lifestyle-related education. Seeking support from a credentialed Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RD or RDN) or Licensed Dietitian Nutritionist (LD or LDN) is recommended. Dietitians are required to not only complete rigorous training (a minimum of 6 years), but also, dietitians must complete continuing education throughout their professional practice. Such training sets dietitians apart from certified health coaches. In fact, unless one holds licensure as a dietitian, it is outside of their scope of practice to prescribe food and nutrition plans, offer nutrition interventions, or conduct nutrition-focused assessments.
