If a dancer does not consume enough calcium they open themselves

up for many bone related injuries. An example of which is stress

fractures, bone marrow reduction, etc. It is MOST important for a

dancer to realize they are the same as an athelete. High ammounts

of calcium are needed in the body for bone regrowth/regeneration

and long term prevention of osteoperosis. Teenage males and females

need the equivalent of a pregnant lady to keep their calcium levels

high. This can be consumed in food such as green leafy vege

(brocolli) and dairy products. Dairy may not always be good for

certain individuals, so alternatives can be discussed with a health

professional. Rounded diet is strongly recommended.
