HEALTHY BALLET BODY MASTERPOST

As I’m sure some of you already know, I’ve been working on a paper that discusses the prevalence of eating disorders in ballet. I would like to thank everyone that shared their stories with me again because you girls really helped me out. I was also required to include a digital component to enhance and contextualize my paper so I decided to compile a healthy ballet body masterpost with links to information like proper dancer nutrition and body positivity. Since I’ve discovered that a lot of my followers struggle with body image issues and eating disorders I thought this would be extremely helpful to them as well as the ballet community in general.
