Project
Being a professional dancer requires the individual to cope with the many physiological and psychological demands and challenges within this aesthetic performance art. With long training sessions, repetitive movements until aesthetic perfectionism, and movements pushed close to anatomical limitations, the dancers are vulnerable for physical fatigue, psychological distress, and injuries. Additionally, body ideals emphasizing lean figures, puts these athletes on risk for body image issues, eating disorders, symptoms of low energy availability (LEA), and injuries. The objective of this project is to study the frequency and intensity of mental health symptoms in professional dance students, and to evaluate the effect from 3 work shops aiming to increase knowledge on mental health symptoms, and on physical exercise recovery strategies. Concurrently, we evaluate the same knowledge among dance pedagoges, and arrange similar workshops. As such, we aim to empower dance pedagoges to better identify health issues in their students.
