You already know that cooking at home makes it easier to control what goes into your meals, allowing you to choose healthy and fresh ingredients to fuel your dancer's body. And a new study published in Public Health Nutrition is ready to back that up, finding that people who frequently cook at home tend to have more nutritious diets overall.

It’s difficult to classify the movement in Vaslav Nijinsky's Le Sacre du Printemps as ballet; today, we would denote such vocabulary as modern dance. But Sergei Diaghilev’s Ballet Russes, which premiered the ballet in Paris in 1913, embraced France's emerging avant-garde culture at the time. They premiered works by new choreographers whose names we now recognize (Michel Fokine, Bronislava Nijinska and George Balanchine, to name a few).

When you're working around a busy schedule of classes and rehearsals, you may be in the habit of eating meals quickly between activities. But two recent studies reveal the potential health benefits of taking your time.
