Atlanta Ballet's Day of Health: Sunday, September 9, 2012

Here's what you do Sunday, September 9, 2012

Go to Atlanta Ballet's Day of Health on Sunday.
On Sunday, the Atlanta Ballet is hosting a Day of Health at the Michael C. Carlos Dance Centre.  The "What Moves You" Health day is a day of free dance classes and learning about nutrition.  From the Atlanta Ballet:

"The celebration of health includes complimentary dance and fitness classes for children ages 6-9, 10-12, 13 & up and adults. The day-long event focuses on the importance of maintaining a balanced and nutritious diet, so you will want to make time for the free nutrition seminars hosted by the Centre for Dance Education's Centre for Dance Nutrition. You are welcome to mix and match as many classes as you like. Make sure you stay until the end for a special performance at 5 PM! 
The Atlanta Ballet Boutique at the Michael C. Carlos Dance Centre will also host a healthy living book fair during the event. The Boutique will have a variety of books by Atlanta Ballet Centre for Dance Nutrition registered dietitian Emily Cook Harrison. These books cover topics ranging from nutrition to foot care. Attend one of Emily's seminars during "What Moves You?" Health Day and then stop by the boutique for some resources to take home with you!"

Here's the full schedule.  It's free to attend.  You can mix and match your dance and nutrition classes as you like.  A great way to spend the day.  For more information contact Carla Cuba, Community Programs Director, at 404.873.5811 x 111.

Here's What You Do does a new day plan every day.  Like us on Facebook below to get updates on your Facebook page.

Here's what you do Sunday

First:  Sunday mornings are for slow starts.  A time to catch up on what's going on in the world.  Read a copy of the New York Times, either on your iPad, or the old fashioned way - paper.   Or, watch CBS Sunday Morning (9-10:30 ET).  Hands down, the most uplifting and just plain interesting news show on TV.  Be prepared to learn something, and don't forget to enjoy the artwork - always a painting or sculpture of the sun.  Have some strawberries, banana, mango, melon.  Relax.  Learn.  ($5 per person for breakfast. New York Time App is free to download and look at the top news.  $19.99 per month for a subscription to see the whole NYT every day, including Sunday.)

CBS Sunday Morning has been collecting Sun Art for Decades.  They display it at interludes throughout the show.

Second:  Head over to health day.  Take the kids and enroll them in some dance classes, or take one yourself.  And, by all means, take advantage of the nutrition classes.   You know?  We're always recommending organic, locally sourced, restaurants on Here's What You Do.  They'll cover those concepts heavily in the seminars at health day.  The Feeding a Health Family session sounds interesting.  So does, It's Dinnertime session.  And, don't forget to check out the ballet performance at 5.   ($Free)

Finally:  Ok, time to put your new nutritional habits into action.   Atlanta has a bunch of nutrition focused restaurants.  Check out this blog at Integrative Nutrition.   Their list includes Cafe Sunflower, Farm Burger, Ria's Bluebird, and Yeah Burger.  After all the burger's from yesterday's Battle of the Burger's Here's What You Do, maybe we can lay off the burgers today.  :-).  We recommend R. Thomas.  A 24-hour eatery with a quirky atmosphere.  Say high to the tropical birds as you enter.  Stay for the food.  They've always been on the cutting edge of nutritious and delicious menus. Vegan.  Raw food.  Plus a regular menu jam packed with good organic food.  Check it out.  $30 per person.

Finish up Sunday at R. Thomas, with a nutritious meal.
