Welcome to Dancers Don’t Diet.

This is a community dedicated to nurturing dancers with a healthy mind and body.

Our approach to food and eating is different to many as we offer a Non-Diet approach based on Health at Every Size principles. With our curious minds and passion for helping dancers, we offer you rich information on how compassionate and respectful eating can enhance your performance, prevent injuries, accelerate rehab, improve body image and grow your artistry.

We value you for who you are and would ask you for the same.


You’re more than welcome to read our blog to suss out more of what we do and how we practice.

Yes, we also have Facebook and Instagram and would love you to follow us there too!
