Is this right for me?

This course has been designed to provide practical education on Dance Nutrition and is structured towards dancers who are training part time, full time, or professionally. It is not recommended for those who are being treated for eating disorders. If unsure, please seek advice from a medical professional before commencing.

How it Works

This pack contains all the information you will need to successfully complete the course and how to prepare. Following enrollment, a new lesson will become available to you every seven days for the following four weeks. Once these lessons are made available to you, you may complete them in your own time.

Each lesson includes an educational video, a cheat sheet for reference and an activity for you to incorporate into your upcoming week. There is plenty of bonus material and resources included in the course and once you have enrolled, you will receive live updates made to the course which ensures that the guidance aligns with the latest available research and information.

If you have opted for a 1:1 coaching upgrade, I will personally be in touch with a link for you to book in!

The course I wish I had....

I created this course as the course I needed when I was training as a dancer. As a teen, I was a 'copycat' dieter who would look externally to those i perceived to be better and more successful than myself, thinking that if I ate like them, I would look better, be happier with myself, and become a better dancer.

I wish I had the foundational nutrition knowledge at the time that would support me in becoming the healthiest dancer I could be, instead of a highly anxious dancer lacking body positivity.

My personal aim in delivering this course is to enable dancers of all ages and stages to understand the important role nutrition plays in their overall health and wellbeing along with their ability to reach their full potential in dance.
