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 passion for helping dancers combined with our excellent knowledge and experience in this very niche area, 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.

We also have Facebook and Instagram and would love you to follow us there too!
