DDP Talks To… Zoë Ashe-Browne and Emma Lister About Dancer Mental Health
Content warning: body image, eating distress, and mental health
This DDP Talks To… takes a deeper dive into the survey conducted by Zoë Ashe-Browne and Emma Lister through their podcast MOVERS SHAKERS MAKERS on dancer mental health. In this second installment, topics including body image, eating distress, self-worth, and identity are addressed as they tie into the experiences of dancers in ballet schools and professional ballet companies.
