We are less than 2 months away from Broadway Con 2022!!
If you follow me on Instagram, you already know – my proposal was accepted to speak at Broadway Con!
If you are unfamiliar with Broadway Con, it is a huge conference for Broadway lovers and artists that happens in Manhattan in winter. I went in January 2020 (my last trip before the pandemic) and was so impressed with the magnitude of the conference! There were thousands of excited theatre people – it felt like a huge cast party!
And, WOW, the speakers and sessions were so powerful! There were powerful motivational talks, practical theatre tips (for directing, acting, casting, etc), panel discussions with big-name performers, and funny presentations that kept the fun vibe going…and I get to be an inspirational part of this for you in July 2022!
In 2020 I shared a booth with The Body Positivity Project, and had so much fun chatting with attendees, and I got to meet my first “superfan” Ava, pictured here.
The discussions I had with people made me double-down in my resolve to help people truly take care of their health, from a non-weight focus, for their specific theatre lifestyle.
And frankly, the reception I received at Broadway Con prompted the start of this blog and the official “The Broadway Dietitian” brand/trademark!
So, without further ado, here is the description of the presentation you will get at Broadway Con:
“Body-Positive Nutrition for Performing Your Best, On and Off-Stage”
Broadway Con, July 8-10, 2022
5:00 PM on Saturday, July 9th in Sutton Place Suite
-Participants will know how to plan and prep meals and snacks to fuel their long rehearsal/show days.
-Participants will feel empowered to take care of their body and not be tethered to weight-loss programs.
Join The Broadway Dietitian for this powerhouse training. Leave with a toolkit backed by science and filled with body positivity – this is not a crash course in dieting! As artists, we need to set ourselves up for success by learning how to plan out and consume foods that will fuel our creative endeavors. Grant yourself permission to eat, and celebrate your unique body with this interactive seminar.
