Yesterday I shared Tamara Rojo’s pledge to improve body image in ballerinas at the English National Ballet by promoting healthy eating habits and lifestyle. Here’s yet another video on the fight to stop eating disorders in ballet.
Charlotte Leeming reports for BBC News on the subject of eating disorders in ballet.
Eating disorders have been a continuous subject in the world of ballet for many years.
But how easy will it be to change the mindset of some dancers?
Please read and view video from the original article here.
There are some truly shocking statistics such as: In the United States alone, there are up to 24 million people affected by eating disorders, 90% of them are women between the ages of 12 and 25, the EXACT age in which girls in ballet begin their formal training (between 10 and 12) and their professional ballet careers (between 18 and 22).
Please take part in creating awareness of eating disorders in ballet by Sharing, Pinning or Liking us below. Many girls’ health may depend on it. Thank you!
