I am a former soloist with the New York City Ballet. When I was a young student, I was always looking for insights into the ballet world and how to improve my dancing as well as beauty and lifestyle tips. Now that I am a professional, it is my turn to share.

On my channel I make ballet, beauty, and lifestyle videos for everyone of all ages. My goal is help dancers improve and achieve their dreams as well as open up the ballet world to non dancers. You will see many different kinds of how-to videos here including makeup, hair, ballet workouts and exercises, Q and A sessions, lifestyle advice, and DIY on this channel. I hope you find all of my videos helpful!

  10. Ever since I was 8 years old I have always had constipation and was always eating weird medications to get rid of the pain in my stomach. No doctors could figure it out what the problem was, and now 15 years later I still have constipation. Until two weeks ago when I watched your video about diet for dancers and decided to cut down on gluten, suger and salt. Within two days the problem with my stomach hade just stopped and now 12 days later I still haven´t taken any medication. It turnsout that I´m gluten intolerance, so if you hadn´t made this video I would still be eating gluten and be in constant constipation. You literally change my life.
    So I just want to say Thank You for everything Kathryn! <3

  12. Can you please do a video showing everything covered at the barre? It would help a lot! Thanks!!!

  13. greenscreennnnnnn !!! no hate buttttt

  14. I don't know about you, but my life wouldn't be worth living if it wasn't for food. If I ate oatmeal for breakfast, a salad for lunch, and so grilled chicken and rice for dinner every day, I think I would kill myself. And I like all those foods! I need snacks because they make me happy. I need butter and pizza and pasta and gravy and beef because those are things I think about when I feel sad. Also I am hungry all the time so without chips and cereal and peanut butter i would die. Encouraging people to eat less isn't good at allllllllll

  15. Hola kathryn; te conocí hace poco como bailarina y me encantan tus videos; me gustaría saber de la dieta de bailarina y no puedo entender el vídeo por mí falta de inglés; podrías volver hacer el vídeo y subtitularlo; no importa en inglés al menos para subtitularlo
    Saludos desde Perú

  16. I am one of the few rare people that is absolutely fine with dairy. They thought I could be dairy intolerant as part of my IBS but after I broke my foot I know for sure I am not intolerant as I drank a pint (UK pint so it's more than 500ml) of milk a day for around a fortnight

  17. I’m thirteen, should i still eat only 1500 calories? Or should i eat more because i’m growing? Also, is it bad to not have a thigh gap as a dancer? I’m not sure what i should be aiming to look like or what i should eat/how much for my age

  18. I love your videos. please send me a pair of your Pointe shoes.

  21. I love your videos. please send me a pair of your Pointe shoes.

  22. so many people my age (i'm 14) watch these videos. we tend to hear things from people we look up to and accept is as something that is correct. you shouldn't encourage us to eat 1500 calories a day! that is nowhere near enough food. i eat like 3000 calories a day. i'm a dancer and a runner, but i sit on my ass and eat chips a lot. i'm like 5'4" and 100 pounds. do you know why i'm so small? because i exercise so much. and i exercise so much that i can spend a lot of my time sitting around. don't encourage young girls to eat less. that's BAD. i love all your other videos but this one is so damaging to young girls. this makes people think that eating 2000 calories a day is way to much. these are people that exercise and dance way more than me that really use you as an inspiration. sorry for my long, incoherent rant. also gluten is delicious

  24. Love the background😍😍😍

  25. Thank you Katie💚💜

  26. Personally, I love that these videos are long and incredibly detailed. Short videos are for short attention spans. I tend to think that successful careers require long attention spans.

  27. i love your channe so mcuh, im a young ballet dancer and your videos really help thank you! x

  28. you are so beautiful. thank you for these tips

  29. Thank you for your videos! I was wondering what would be a good approach to this if you are still living with your family. And also is there any thing you could have instead of a banana. Thanks

  30. Inside seventh day mark I had already shed 10 pounds from just following “sowo hope site” (Google it). Google gave me some amazing advice.

  31. I love her but these recommendations are extremely unhealthy. Eating less than 2000 calories per day puts the body into a starvation mode, causing your body to store a lot of fat. Any weight that you lose starving yourself will come back, and then some. Eating this little makes you extremely vulnerable to a binge on really unhealthy foods, and will make all of the weight come back. This is the body's response to famine: store more energy in case of starvation again. Also the recommendation about not eating a lot of sugar is ridiculous. Every cell in your brain runs on glucose, and the rest of your body runs on other forms of carbohydrates. Limiting your sugar intake means that more of your calories will be coming from fat and proteins, which are not very good for a dancer. Protein is good if you want to gain a lot of muscle mass and look like a body builder, but not a dancer. Fat is the main problem, because it is what is actually stored in your cells as fat, exactly what it sounds like. For healthy weight loss one should adopt a predominantly whole-foods plant based diet which is high in carbs and low in fats. For information on how to do this, watch Freelee the Banana Girl's videos, Nina and Randa, that Vegan Couple, etc… just do not follow this low sugar and low calorie diet because it will leave you feeling very low and sad, and the weight you lose from cutting carbs is water weight, which you will gain back very quickly.

  32. Just to correct you if I may, it isn't no carb but in fact low carb since almost everything you eat contains carbs. You are merely removing starchy and sugary foods from your diet or limiting it. Which is like you said limiting sugar and gluten. It has in fact worked for many many people, dancers or not. Some people can function on low carbs. Others can function on a high carb diet. Just my two cents. Great video though. 🙂

  33. you said cut out gluten… but you said eat oats..
    My little peanut brain just imploded

  34. My art teacher was saying that she does fast and feast were she eats 500 calories one day and 2000 the next day, I want to show her this video

  35. can we meet??? +91-7722919129 whatsapp

  36. also can I eat anything instead of nuts because I don't know if I should have just fruit or something else to
    balance it out.

  37. Hello. I hav a few questions I am not so keen on vegtables so can I do a fruit salad instead. Luv ur channel BTW xxx

  38. It's so good to hear you're a three meal eater as well. I usually just have some fruit or coffee for breakfast, lunch normally, and a fruit in between classes in the afternoon, since I'm at studio from 2 p.m to 9 p.m
    I've found I am never hungry enough fr 5 meals or multiple snacks, or large portions, and that, plus exercising more along with pilates, is really helping me tone my muscles and reducing my tummy size, however i find my inner thighs very puffy and they are not getting toned, I wonder if you have any advice Katie?

  39. I don't many foods or much variety. I just don't want to try foods that I'm 99.99999999999% sure that I won't like. I don't eat meat or seafood. I eat only some fruits, not many types of fruits currently. And I'm not a big vegetable person, I'm more of a fruit person. I do eat many grains. Bread, granola, oatmeal, and rice. And I love yogurt, milk, water, and only some juices. I don't eat enough variety of food to make an actual meal. So I eat about 5 or 6 small "meals" throughout the day and drink lots of water because I move around a lot. They're more like snacks, but of a bigger quantity. So I eat 2 waffles, some low-fat vanilla yogurt, and maybe a clementine or a bit of granola, and that's my breakfast. And that fills me up for about two-three hours. If I'm feeling a bit peckish, I might eat a granola bar or some unsalted crackers with some water or juice. Overall, I think I'm okay, maybe my taste buds will change and I'll actually like more foods in the future. I'm 14, almost 15, I've got my whole life ahead of me to try food.

  40. I really wanna loose my period

  41. is Apple sauce good for snacks?
