Nutrition for Dancers Workshop
Oct

2:30 PM14:30

Nutrition for Dancers Workshop

This year, for the first time, In Step will be delivering a 2-hour special on nutrition for dancers aimed to educate our seniors on the importance of a healthy diet, allowing them to make good choices when it comes to food. 

Studio owner, Christine Wishart will be delivering this workshop alongside her partner Greg Cameron who manage their healthy lifestyle together. Both Christine and Greg come from health and fitness backgrounds and know a great deal about the topics through both education and experience. 

Throughout her education, Christine studied 'Healthy Eating for Dancers' as part of her dance training at Dance Studio Scotland. Some years later when training to be a fitness instructor, Christine spent a great deal of time studying nutrition as part of her job and in her own time for personal interest. Along with advising her clients about their relationship with food, she took a personal journey into making a healthy lifestyle for herself. 

Greg Cameron is soon to join our team as the first lifestyle adviser at In Step as we develop our health and well-being aspect of the company. Greg qualified with an A in his HND in Fitness, Health and Exercise in 2013 and has developed a great understanding of the relationship that food has with an active lifestyle since. Greg has dedicated the last 18 months to creating a lifestyle which revolves around a healthy mind, body, and soul. He is now focused on helping others to do the same. 

Together, both Christine and Greg lead a very healthy lifestyle and have recently completed their NCFE Level 2 qualification in Understanding Nutrition and Health. In preparation for our -first of many- workshops in Nutrition for Dancers, the couple will be attending the Scottish Fitness & Nutrition Expo in Glasgow on Sunday 15th October to learn from some of the most inspiring and successful people in the industry.

Attendance is strongly advised for all seniors at this workshop in order to benefit and educate as many of our dancers as possible.
