The BroadwaY Body positivity project

I’m all about health for performers – from a weight-neutral/positive body image place. I provide expert comment for any nutrition-related querys.

I love speaking to BFA groups (notably “CARES” programs at colleges) and offer online health classes specific for stage performers.
