Take Back the Tutu - Part 2February 27, 2014.
Eating Disorder Awareness Week is in full swing. There are many community and awareness events occurring this week. We were thrilled when Saint Paul City Ballet agreed to share their inspirational and courageous views of body image, and the idea that each and every person’s body is different. It’s important to embrace the body we have and take care of it. Our body is our body. It helps us do activities we enjoy and to move about our days. For these dancers, their bodies give them the ability to perform their art – ballet. And they vow to “Take Back the Tutu.”
Take Back the Tutu, Part 1February 25, 2014.
It’s Eating Disorder Awareness Week and we’re excited to share insight from dancers at Saint Paul City Ballet about being themselves and embracing their bodies for what they help them do – perform their art. This two part series will take you through the background of how “Taking Back the Tutu” came to be and share statements written by the nine dancers at the Company.
One week just isn’t enough time to highlight eating disorders awareness, so we’ve designated the entire month of February as Eating Disorder Awareness Month. The Emily Program and The Emily Program Foundation invite you to come out and participate in one (or all) of these events.
