'Ask Ava' your health or fitness related question
If you have a specific health or fitness related question the FAQs do not address, submit your question to our resident Agony Aunt for a personal response. Agony Aunt advice is provided by former professional dancer and dance scientist Ava Barron MSc and supported by our advisory committees where appropriate. All queries are treated in confidence by Dance UK staff.
Anneli Chasemore, a German ballet dancer who recently emailed Dance UK and Ava with a query says:
Thank you for your email. Yes, Ava did also send me a helpful Email. I am so impressed with the level of attention you can give me from a far...the helpline is a great thing. Thank you.
