Leading Soloist Hannah Bateman answers a question about her diet and weight restrictions.
Put simply as a ballerina Hannah’s on a high-calorie, well-balanced diet. In rehearsals, training and performing she needs a lot of energy and the Company needs all the dancers to be at their best, something they wouldn’t be if they weren’t eating properly.
On Monday two of our dancers, Leading Soloist Hannah Bateman and Premier Dancer Kenneth Tindall, are as many questions as they can about what it to be a professional dancer, life on tour and (almost) anything you can think of… If you post questions here I’ll post back their answers :)
Please share so as many people as possible get to ask a question!
We have HD screens in our home where we show what’s touring, what’s coming and so on. Here’s one we just made for our new production oc Cinderella; it would be fairly easy to adapt these for use as desktop wallpapers… Is this something anyone would like?
