Dancer Wellness

Are you a dancer who needs help with nutrition or eating to fuel your classes, rehearsals and performance?

 

Do you need help with certain aspects of dance technique or know you need to do supplemental conditioning but aren't sure where to start?

 

Do you need to correct muscle imbalances or want to prevent injuries and perform at your best?

As a lifelong dancer who struggled with her body and  became a Registered Dietitian and exercise specialist, Gabbi provides the exact education, guidance, and training that you need. 

Gabbi integrates her extensive studies of exercise science and nutrition with her training in dance in order to help dancers achieve and sustain optimal wellness. Gabbi knows first hand that the demands of the dance world are rigorous, and she is passionate about applying her knowledge of physiology, exercise, sports nutrition, and health to help dancers maximize their performance while minimizing injury risk.  It is essential for dancers to apply sound nutrition and conditioning practices in order to perform at their best and have long careers with minimal injuries.

Gabbi has conducted extensive research in many areas of dance science and wellness for dancers. She provides workshops and presentations for both dancers and dance teachers to help dancers find the technique, nutrition, and conditioning practices that enable them to reach their best health and performance capabilities. Gabbi can also teach dance conditioning classes and provide individual counseling to dancers to address their specific needs.
