Wellness for Dancers & Athletes
for your School or Company
Are you or your dancer's struggling with:
ongoing pain between classes or performances
If you answered yes to any or all of these, this presentation is for you. Learn, information you won’t hear from your doctor about achieving optimal weight, improving energy and stamina and reducing injuries, aches and pains.
This program provides a hands on interactive "Scripted Play: Healthy Dancing Bones" where dancers act out the parts of whole foods, minerals, vitamins and more to get a comprehensive education on the physiology and biochemistry of how nutrients work in the body to support healthy bones and tissue repair to reduce injury. This interactive play provides a clear and FUN illustration of the importance of eating adequate amounts of whole foods daily.
