Dance Nutrition 101 – Menstruation is an important milestone

How many of you have heard a sigh or faced the disappointed look from a teacher or someone you look up to when you told them your period has started?


Those reactions are wrong.


Menstruation, the commencement of it and the monthly hello’s, is a gift!


It means that your body is growing healthily and that you are capable of building a stronger body.


Having your period means your bones won’t go fragile at 28 years of age, a peak time in your dance career.


So celebrate it, talk about it, and be open about it.
