As a dancer, staying fit is important. To stay strong outside of the studio, pilates can be a great strengthening option. Pilates can help maintain your core strength and help rehabilitate your body during or after an injury.

When you're headed into rehearsals all day, it's extremely important to eat a balanced breakfast to sustain your energy throughout the day. The answer to this is a breakfast rich in protein. This food group tends to be favored by dancers because protein stimulates the metabolism and muscles, but also wakes up the brain cells.

Walking through the steps of your choreography slowly when learning it will definitely help you remember it more quickly. This helps muscle memory as well as mental memory.
