This surely had an influence on their fitness levels and their technique. It is important to compensate these months of lost training properly in order to deal with a higher risk for injuries.

Nutrition for dancers in times of the Corona pandemic.

with Eva-Maria Kraft, BA

Online presentation (90 min + 30 min questions/discussion)

In this current situation dancers are affected in many ways. These times at home without regular training and rehearsals are raising many new questions, also concerning nutrition.

In the past months everyone was challenged to provide food for themselves, cook daily and taking care about one’s own nutrition more than usually. For some this may be a joyous experience and for others it might be connected to various difficulties.

For dancers this period is being shaped by unusual training routines, changed daily rhythms and new eating behaviour which can lead to changes in the body.

In this workshop the basics of a generally healthy diet for dancers are being highlighted. A focus will be on the current time, its problems like loss and gain of weight and increased consumption of semi luxury food like sweets or alcohol. Furthermore, topics like injury and regeneration, the advantages and disadvantages of complete self-subsistence will be covered and how these insights can be taken into the up and coming active future.

The 90-minutes presentation is followed by a Q&A session with discussion.

Communicational exchange for ballet masters & teachers: build-up of fitness & training

with Univ.Prof. Andreas Starr, MSc, Diplom-Tanzpädagoge
Angélique Keller, MSc Sports Science, MAS Dance Science, Sports Therapist 

Ballet masters, mistresses and rehearsal directors, administrative staff and choreographers are in a unique and highly demanding position and responsibility. Responding well to this unusual period not only means to alter our familiar ways of doing things, changing schedules, rehearsals and performances, but to also adapt to this currently everchanging situation and provide a good build-up for the dancers we are responsible for.
In addition to these recommendations, questions about the practice application can be followed-up in zoom meetings. These can cover areas from how to gain and establish dancer’s fitness, the build-up of training and rehearsals or adaptations within company classes or rehearsal scheduling etc.

This offer aims to provide further sport scientific and dance science support, room for questions as well as general exchange of thoughts and can be booked as:
– Individual online sessions one-on-one as well as in smaller groups whichever way preferred.
– Short online presentations about these recommendations that are followed by a Q&A session.
