Dress Code

EDA Dress Policy:

Why a Dress Code?   -Tradition and respect for the art  -It is essential for reinforcing in students a sense of respect and discipline.  -It reinforces the integrity of EDA’s dance education program.  -To provide the best instruction, it is crucial for teachers to be able to see the dancer’s body placement  so to make corrections.
