The purpose of this study was to assess the relationship between weight oriented job pressure and bulimic symptomatology among female Las Vegas production show dancers. Surveys were distributed to approximately 100 dancers at the professional level in the Las Vegas area at the professional dance and Pilates studios as well as backstage at two of the shows. The surveys measured perceived weight oriented job pressure, body dissatisfaction in response to weight oriented job pressure, and differences in self-reported attribution between symptomatic bulimic and non-bulimic dancers. This study may provide evidence for the need to implement prevention measures for this at-risk population and implications for further research.
