Studio Training Solutions
I provide experience from my fifty-plus year involvement in the field of dance and my career as I have personally worked towards optimal balance. For over thirty years I have included wellness practices in my calling to inspire and mentor others in their art life journey, while continuing to daily implement holistic care in my personal life. I hold a Master of Fine Arts in Dance as well as certifications in Health and Life Coaching, Plant-Based Nutrition and Mental Health First Aid, equipping me to successfully serve in this realm of Dancer Wellness Care.
As a coach and educator, I offer research-based workshops, webinars, and calls to equip and empower individuals, and groups. I focus on the power of foundational health and whole food nutrition as a base for productivity and a healthy lifestyle. I provide
practical solutions rooted in cutting-edge science to achieve optimal dancer wellness.
Dance is an embodied holistic experience including the body, soul, and spirit. I include a well-informed foundational care program and resources that fuel the physical body and brain health as well as nurturing the soul, mind, will, and emotions with nourishment for optimal performance. This includes understanding the nutrients that fuel increased energy and performance, healthy meals and snacks, easy pack-and-go foods, eating for recovery, tips for hydration, rest, and sleep solutions, and approaches for cultivating mindfulness.
Self-care is imperative for longevity. Accountability and support help us move toward success in achieving our goals. As a holistic health consultant, I help people focus on their entirety by integrating wellness encompassing their physical, nutritional,
mental, emotional, and spiritual health. Through a process including self-evaluation, tools and resources, guided conversations, and support, I help create intentional lifestyle
choices bringing balance with sustainable wellness results.
Attending to the whole person, I speak to dancers, educators, studio owners, company directors, parents, and others in the dance-affiliated field from years of personal experiences to provide a wellness mindset specific to the dancer. Together we explore
other aspects in a dancer’s life to encourage and support healthy changes.
