THE CONCEPT 

'Feel the inspiration of dance!'

 

EDAS is a dance-art cooperative operating in various European Union countries and offering high-quality Ballet/Dance/Visual Arts workshops and study programs, which caters for the needs of both dance students and teachers. EDAS has a unique network of distinguished dance instructors whose varied experience, methods and approaches to teaching can best prepare students for life as a professional dancer. All workshop dancers are encouraged to participate in one or more performances for the public. Moreover, the EDAS Board of Directors consists of individuals from various European countries who contribute a wide range of experience and expertise. Cooperation between the workshops ensures the same high quality of instruction in each workshop setting, with the added benefit of reduced costs.

It is important that dancers should maintain their technique and undertake further training during long summer vacations by participating in a workshop, but this can be costly and beyond the means of some talented dance students. It is also often the case that no such facilities are available in the area where the dance students live. EDAS aims to overcome both these problems by offering low-cost courses to talented dancers from all over the world, in areas where such facilities were lacking, with scholarships available in some cases to assist students with their summer dance education.

In 2006-2008, EDAS awarded 35 students a free scholarship to the SIBA summer workshop in Salzburg. Also granted several free scholarships to winners of various ballet competitions in Europe. Our aim is to increase this number each year, with the kind help of different individual benefactors and organizations.
