ENROLLMENT OPENS APRIL 2021
Do you feel pressure to look a certain way as you pursue dance?
The Dancers’ Best Body Program was created for you…
From the time you were probably much too young, it’s been stressed how important your body is as a dancer.
It should look a certain way…
move a certain way…
be a certain way…
Perhaps you’ve been told by teachers or artistic staff over the years that, “this is too big” or “that’s not toned enough” or your “proportions aren’t right.”
Rarely are you actually told how to change your body or achieve this “ideal”.
You’re left confused, without any support, trying to figure out your body alone.
All the mixed messages in the media just make things worse.
You’re eating as healthfully as you know how, maybe you even track your calories, but for some reason, your body isn’t shifting in the direction you desire.
It feels like your career is stalling or won’t even get started.

EMILY KLEINSCHMIDT, PROFESSIONAL DANCER IN THE TWIN CITIES
After gaining more information about food, I have a better understanding of what foods work for my body. I’ve noticed just a general sense of feeling better when I fuel my body with nutrient-dense, nourishing foods. More importantly, though, I pinpointed the root of my body image issues. I wouldn’t say that it’s been magically solved and I feel great about my body everyday, but I do think that I’m on the path to self acceptance.
I just returned to the studio. I was having some anxiety about the judgement and shame I’d put on how my body looked, but I was surprised to learn that the first day I looked in the mirror and felt great. For the first time in ages I didn’t look around the room and say to myself “you’re the fattest person here”, which is HUGE for me. I’m sure I’ll still have hard days moving forward, but I feel like I now have some tools to work towards permanent self acceptance.
I would absolutely recommend this course. If someone was struggling with how to fuel their body, how they see themselves, negative self talk, relationship with food, cross training, or comparison to others, then this is the course for you. You’ll learn valuable information that will help you gain a better relationship with food and with yourself. You’ll also connect with people through the group coaching calls in a really positive way.
HANNAH KNORR, FT. WAYNE BALLET
I always thought that I was just going to struggle with food and my body forever and be unhappy until I was skinny. Which at my core, I knew was false. But without this program, my past self would’ve believed all of the thoughts that came through my head as facts. By participating in this program, those thoughts I had were often challenged and that allowed me to take a step back, and see that the voice in my head wasn’t always telling the truth.
I am here to say it is 100% possible to find peace with food, body and enjoy dancing again.
We are all human and have ups and downs and through the group coaching calls, you can confide in one another, gain tools and education from Jess and others, and for me it really shrank my problems that I was blowing out of proportion in my head. In the best way. I gained more trust and positivity in my relationship with myself, and was able to step away from the victim feeling – I don’t allow all my thoughts to control my happiness and self worth any more.
Here’s what it looks like inside the online program…

EMMA STEWART, CANADA’S NATIONAL BALLET SCHOOL
This program is much more interactive than other dancers’ support services I have seen. From bi-weekly group coaching, to journaling and actions, the program allows you to apply what you learn and make new habits in your daily life.
Jess is an incredibly supportive and encouraging coach. She has built a program in which you can meet new dancers from around the world who share the same struggles as you. I have been able to create new healthy habits in my diet. I gained immense amounts of confidence in my dancing and body. And most importantly, I’m no longer worried about how months off from COVID-19 will affect my future.
I have lost the couple of pounds I gained from quarantine. I have seen changes in my leg muscles and abdominals. I have much less worry about my body and myself as a whole person. My mindset is much more positive.
TATUM BEYNON, UNIVERSITY OF IOWA BFA DANCE PROGRAM
I have a much better mental view of myself, WAY better body image, and I am not afraid of food anymore… I am just thankful that I can have joy when I dance.
If you really invest in this program, it can heal your body image, relationship with food, and help you accept yourself where you are. I may not have dropped 20 pounds over the course of this program, but that’s not necessarily what it means to achieve your best body.
Your best body is one that you are comfortable in and I am proud to say I am comfortable in mine. I finally don’t feel alone in my struggles and feel that I have the tools and resources to overcome them.

CHANTELLE MEYERS, PROFESSIONAL DANCER ABROAD
When I worked with sports doctors and nutritionists in the past they didn’t really understand a dancers life and were just trying to promote their own agenda, rather than help you find exactly what works for you.
I would definitely recommend The Dancers’ Best Body Program. I think the biggest reason I recommend it is because the program covers everything and helps you create a healthy lifestyle that can be maintained long-term — it isn’t an extreme or “quick fix” program.
Through my participation, I have a better mindset, more self-love and more muscle tone.
I really enjoyed the group calls and always looked forward to them! I am going to miss them! It has helped me to be more accountable with going through the program. Whilst I am comfortable sharing with individual people, sometimes sharing with a group of people stresses me, so it has helped push me out of my comfort zone and become more confident.
ANNA ACKERMAN, PITTSBURGH BALLET THEATRE SCHOOL
I think that The Dancer’s Best Body Program is amazing because there is such a sense of camaraderie amongst the other participating dancers. It feels open, safe, and encouraging in every aspect.
The number one thing that has changed for me during this program is the awareness of my mindset. Along with that, I have discovered an eating plan that works for me and helps me feel energized and confident. I have noticed positive changes in my body and proportions that have not only been noticed by me but by others as well.
