Hi there, welcome to Dancers Don’t Diet.
I’m Fumi, a Dance Dietitian with a passion to nurture dancers with a healthy mind and body.
I founded Dancers Don’t Diet because I want to help dancers manage their nutrition and eating to bring out the best of their health and performance.
Throughout my personal and professional life I have seen, unfortunately, too many dancers lose their dream or their career due to unhealthful eating practices. Some eating disorders; some disordered eating; some prolonged injuries which could have been optimised through specific nutrition approach; and some unhealthy attitude towards, and relationship with, their own bodies.
So here I am on a mission to provide the best-quality, dance-specific health care to support the challenging and demanding life of a dancer’s career and ensure they have a body that’s strong, resilient, nourished and high-performing.
I will provide you with information, knowledge, skills, motivation, and inspiration you need to take a compassionate and respectful approach to your own body.
I’m also a certified Pilates instructor and enjoy providing dance-specific body conditioning classes. It also helps me understand the mind-body connection important in performing arts and the dancer’s development.
If you’re after an evidence-based, compassionate, dance-specific nutritional care, you have come to the right place.
I can’t wait to start working with you to enhance your health and performance.
