Resource Papers and Fact Sheets

PDF PDF Version (English)

The IADMS Education committee is proud to announce the 2016 Nutrition Resource Paper. This document replaces the widely circulated Nutrition Fact Sheet, written by Pricilla Clarkson, PhD, in 2003, updating and addressing information which was not available in the first publication. This Resource Paper and planned future fact sheets derived from this paper, are aimed at dancers and dance students, as well as dance educators all around the world. The information is based on the most up-to-date evidence-based sports and dance research that are currently available.

This paper aims to be a practical guide for educators and dancers, focusing on the whole nutritional milieu, and providing information which can inform choices and offer flexible strategies. Readers will be able to navigate the document by clicking on the topic in the table of contents or by downloading the entire PDF. The paper was written with a range of measures (e.g. oz. vs. grams) and several terms are used to describe foods (e.g. biscuit vs. cookie) as the paper is targeted to reach an international audience. Specific references are included so the reader can obtain further information for self- study. There is also a general reading list and many links within the paper to direct the reader to appropriate sources from the US, UK, and Australia for additional information.
