(Nutrition Resource Paper 2016)
Creator: Pricilla Clarkson
Description: The widely circulated Nutrition Fact Sheet, written by Pricilla Clarkson, PhD, under the auspices of the IADMS Education Committee has been the basis of nutritional information for many dancers since its publication in 2003. The information is based on the most up-to-date evidence-based sports and dance research that are currently available at the time of this writing. This paper aims to be a practical guide for educators and dancers, focusing on the whole nutritional milieu, and providing information which can inform choices and offer flexible strategies.
Every month we have a new dance related topic. On Monday we highlight a new recommended resource.
