When to Eat In addition to paying attention to what you should consume, you should pay attention to when you consume calories. Dancing without eating is an unsafe practice, since your muscles demand glucose for energy. If this doesn’t come from your ingested food, then the body will get it from the muscles themselves. This means you will be weakening your muscles, just as you are putting a demand on them, leaving yourself open to injury. One hour before exercise, you should consume water and some carbohydrate and protein.

When muscles are overloaded, they need rest in order to rebuild themselves. Your mind also needs rest for optimal function. When you don’t get enough rest, you become less alert and more prone to accidents. If you have trouble sleeping or are too anxious to rest, learn some relaxation techniques and pace yourself during your day so that your body and mind have time to rest. Summary One of the great benefits of studying modern dance is that you learn more about how your body functions. By paying attention to the areas addressed in this chapter, you will better understand the amazing coordination of your muscles and skeleton when you dance.

Elevate the injured body part above the heart, if possible, and then ice for no less than 20 minutes. Repeat this at least once an hour for the first 24 hours of an injury. Be sure to put two or three layers of fabric or a towel between you and the ice to prevent skin burns from the ice. The skin may naturally get pink as a result of icing. This should not concern you. If you do get a hive or extremely red skin under the ice, then you should remove it, since this is a more severe reaction, which could lead to a burn.
