I received a link to an online article that grabbed my attention as it discusses eating disorders in ballet companies and the perils of discussing it openly.
The article, You are what you eat, especially as ballet dancers is an interesting read. And it is very topical given the conference on nutrition and eating disorders in dance held earlier this week in London.
This appears to be the moment when the dance profession is ready to step into limelight to be open about the issues of eating disorders and disordered eating in dance. Let’s hope real progress follows.
