Guidelines for Professional Dance Companies on Healthy Nutrition (Dance/USA)

Guidelines for Professional Dance Companies on Healthy Nutrition: Dance/USA Taskforce on Dancer Health


“Please know that the Guidelines are not meant to be a nutritional manual with specifics on proteins, carbohydrates and calories. Rather they are a series of recommendations that encourage dance companies to institute a program with 3 main goals: the education of both dancers and staff on healthy nutrition; the prevention of nutritional problems before they arise; and the recognition and management of fully developed nutritional disorders. Each area is approached from the unique perspective of a professional dance company. As with all good tools, the Guidelines should be a living document that can be revised, expanded and hopefully made better as companies provide us with information on their usefulness.”
