I’m so proud that my company Ballet Tucson is partnering with the Whole Dancer this season and beyond. The physical and mental demands of this rigorous art form can be hard to navigate and Jess at The Whole Dancer is the perfect guide. She helps artists to develop a healthy approach to all aspects of their practice while maintaining their deep love and passion for dance.

I felt the coaching experience was really specific. Sometimes I needed support with my eating, sometimes I needed more support to see the whole dance world from a bigger, more open-minded perspective. As dancers sometimes we forget that we have the choice to say no, or to choose where we want to work. I felt seen during our meetings and It gave me a huge support in my everyday life.
