Making Real The Ideal
What would your ideal body look like? Unfortunately, in the ballet world, too many of the answers you'll hear in response to that question in no way resemble a realistic, healthy physique.
The National Eating Disorders Association will hold its first ever teen summit on October 15 with the aim of bringing the ideal body type a little closer to the real. All teens, ages 13 to 17, are invited to the Renaissance Hollywood Hotel & Spa in Hollywood, CA from 11 am to 2:30 pm to hear from a number of body image experts, as well as discuss their thoughts on the top issues impacting them. Registration is completely free, and lunch will be provided. Go to myneda.org/teen-summit.
