DANCERS’ HEALTH & NUTRITION
Rule 1: Dancers are Athletes. Professional athletes take VERY good care of their bodies for optimal performance. Professional dancers should follow their example and do the same.
Rule 2: Quality sleep is crucial to optimal performance. Athletes’ bodies NEED 6-8 hours of uninterrupted quality sleep.
Rule 3: Listen to your bodies. Plan for optimal performance during your performances not before or after.
Rule 4: Drink enough water for your bodyweight and activity.
