Palucca University

Nutritional counselling

An adequate nutrition plays an important role during the entire dance education and is an integral part of our university.

The dancers are accompanied and supported in nutritional matters. The university provides lessons, lectures and workshops to the students of all grades. In doing so, food is analyzed, forms of nutrition are discussed and specific nutrition plans are drawn up. The individual nutritional counseling offered by the university is a unique part of the study programmes.

The concept of nutritional counseling was developed within the framework of a research project and is based on current scientific findings on dancers` nutrition and the recommendations of the German Society for Nutrition (DGE).
