An Important Message
Our Founder

As many of you know, I started Dancing with ED, Inc. in 2013 because I noticed a pressing need to create a safe space for dancers, parents, and teachers, where they can learn about and discuss eating disorders as well as gain the support they need through resources and a sense of community...

Share my Story

Sharing our stories and experiences have the potential to connect us to a larger community and a shared purpose. We strive to change the narrative around eating disorders in dance. Our individual experiences, woven together, create a beautiful tapestry called, OUR story. Stories have the power to teach, heal and connect. Our goal with this series is to raise awareness of the struggles related to disordered eating, weight and body image perception, and mental health issues in the dance community by initiating meaningful conversations and de-stigmatizing this prevalent experience.
