Eating can enhance your performance, but not-eating can’t.
No matter how much nutrition knowledge you get, you’re not making use of it until you start eating plentifully!
Take a moment and absorb these important roles of eating:
- Eating plentifully will support your ability to dance, physically.
- Eating plentifully and healthfully can help prevent some injuries; or in case of an already injured dancer, it can help accelerate the healing process.
- Eating intuitively and mindfully can nourish your mind and body.

So don’t hesitate to schedule in your meal and snack times. In fact, that’s a great starting point to prioritise your body’s needs.
