L’École supérieure publishes the first nutrition guide for dancers

L’École supérieure has chosen World Ballet Day to launch Manger, danser, se surpasser : Guide de nutrition pour danseurs (Eat, Dance, Excel: Nutrition Guide for Dancers). Developed in collaboration with dietician-nutritionist Catherine Naulleau, this work is an essential tool for dancers as well as all athletes who practice a sport incorporating an aesthetic and artistic component.

“Eating the right foods at the right time is essential for maintaining a healthy weight as well as the slender figure required to deliver optimal performance,” explained Catherine Naulleau, adding: “The guide has really been designed to not only educate young dancers, but their parents and professors as well. Its usefulness extends well beyond the dance community.”

“Our goal is to address the importance of a healthy body,” stated Anik Bissonnette, Artistic Director of l’École supérieure. Providing clear explanations, tips and simple recipes, this guide holds a host of information useful for developing sound eating habits.

Available in a handy format, the well illustrated Guide de nutrition pour danseurs is for sale at l’École supérieure for $15. For mail order, email us at [email protected]
