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.
This one day symposium organised as part of the Healthier Dancer programme, by Dance UK was held at the Royal Society of Medicine at 1 Wimpole Street, London. A great venue and auditorium for this type of event. And it was really good to see so many from the dance world interested in this vitally important topic. Lots of useful information was given by the eminent presenters looking at the topic from a variety of perspectives.
The full conference title is:-
Nutrition and disordered eating in dance: Artistry, athleticism and the role of the multidisciplinary support team
Date: Monday 30 April 2012 Venue: Royal Society of Medicine, London W1G 0AE
The event is a Dance UK, Healthier Dancer Programme Conference.
I am looking forward to attending this conference. The text below about the conference is copied from the promotional email sent out.
