What would your ideal body look like? Unfortunately, in the ballet world, too many of the answers you'll hear in response to that question in no way resemble a realistic, healthy physique.
The National Eating Disorders Association will hold its first ever teen summit on October 15 with the aim of bringing the ideal body type a little closer to the real. All teens, ages 13 to 17, are invited to the Renaissance Hollywood Hotel & Spa in Hollywood, CA from 11 am to 2:30 pm to hear from a number of body image experts, as well as discuss their thoughts on the top issues impacting them. Registration is completely free, and lunch will be provided. Go to myneda.org/teen-summit.
