All the health lessons you never learned in school, for Dancers, Singers & Actors
Are you a performer struggling:
- To stay in prime shape for the demands of choreography and long days?
- With what to eat on show days or during those long rehearsals?
- Digestive issues (like gas or bloating) on stage?
- To take care of your voice? (like: is dairy really bad for my voice? Will honey help?)
- With an eating disorder, addiction, anxiety, or depression?
- With finding EASY & ACHIEVABLE, ways of dealing with the above?
Are you stressed about:
- Finding the right foods for energy without a “crash”
- Breaking old health habits and creating new ones
- How much you are exercising
- Planning snacks/meals
- Figuring out what health claims are true, versus myth
- or other health issues?
For Groups/Schools: Looking For A Workshop That Has Your Students' Whole-Person Health in Mind?
I know many performing arts programs are looking for workshops that really benefit their students and have their whole-person health in mind. As a registered dietitian and a performer, I know that taking care of one’s body and mind is of the utmost importance now more than ever. I would love to collaborate with you to share what I have learned, both on and off stage, with your students/group…
I recently took my successful, “Whole Health for Performers” Online Course and converted it into a Live Workshop for organizations like yours.
This workshop is customizable to whatever time frame works best for you and your student’s needs. It is perfect for actors, dancers, singers, comedians, drag performers, musicians, and any other theater professionals, who want to prepare their minds and bodies for a career of longevity and fulfillment.
The infographic highlights the benefits of this course. The course also includes free worksheets and Live Q & A time with me, so I can answer any personal questions your budding artists may have. If you are interested in anything I mentioned here, please don’t hesitate to reach out and ask about how I can create a workshop to fit your unique needs.

“I’ve only just started Whole Health for Performers and the course has helped me in these ways:
1. I bought new, effective running shoes and threw out my sub-par ones that weren’t cutting it, and were enabling my less active ways.
2. I’ve been eating more healthy, balanced meals. Not always, but more often, and I’m reaping the benefits, and developing a craving for better foods as well.
3. Due to becoming more aware and healthy, I’ve noticed what’s been ailing me, and unfortunately, being a pothead wasn’t the best thing for me. So I’ve given weed up for a month and my stomach and mind are clearer. Who knew that excessive amounts of a drug that I thought was helping my stomach and mood was part of what was causing negative effects, in the gastro-intestinal and anxiety department?
Thanks Libby for helping me be more self-aware and getting me more on track! I need this in order to finish my song cycle, tackle my album release with my band and, hell, live longer and more anxiety free! I have OCD and this kind of awareness is exactly what I need.”
“I feel so much healthier at the end of this course than I did in the beginning, because I am healthier. That really says a lot for me too because usually I am so exhausted by the end of [the semester].”

Why Learn from Libby?
So many reasons…. Not only do I have 8 years of higher education (plus job experience) in nutrition and health (check out my linked-in or about me pages on my website), I have been a personal trainer, and more importantly – I am a performer! I have been on stage (mainly community theatre) since I was 11 years old, and fell in love with it. I sing, dance, and act (in musical theatre and take lessons – and I played violin for 5 years), and do this while working full-time. I understand the difficulties of balancing work and/or school with a theatrical production/ rehearsals/ dance classes, and the struggle to stay healthy, get enough sleep, eat well (enough) to feel good, and deal with mental and emotional health issues in relation to performance. I have had the beginning phases of heat stroke in rehearsal, lost my voice, had to figure out what food I can pack that won’t upset my stomach, and other experiences you may have had. I learned from experience, and finally researching the science to see what can I (and YOU) do to not have these problems again. If you notice common issues I have missed in this course – let me know! I want this to be comprehensive, and will continue to add to it at no additional cost to you. There is also a private facebook community where you can share your struggles and successes with other like-minded performers.
