‘Feel the inspiration of dance!’
EDAS is a dance-art operating in cooperation with local dance organizations, or schools,  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 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 the years 2006-2012, EDAS awarded over 100 students a free scholarship to the SIBA summer workshop in Salzburg. In addition, 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.

EDAS PROJECTS:
The concept of EDAS is rapidly growing in acceptance. Many companies have already joined EDAS and
many more will follow. We welcome dance-art workshops of the same high standards who are dedicated to

GOALS
The European Dance Art Organization (EDAS) is an autonomous non-profit organization dedicated to
promoting standards of excellence in dance education, by providing Ballet workshops for young artists and dance educators and through creating a network of resources and support. Our goal is to organize and promote dance workshops, dance projects, and gala performances, which broaden dance students’ experience and strengthen the international dance community by implementing a vision of dance education for all.
EDAS aims to create a network of dance instructors who will rotate between the workshop projects, thus
creating a unique opportunity for them to share their skills and expertise and to contribute to the education
of dance students.
EDAS also aims to help dance teachers from all over the world who have no opportunities to consult other
teachers or artistic directors about studio problems, young dancer education, getting into the modern world
of computerized dance studios, dance schedules, improving studio performances, dealing with dancers’
health problems such as bulimia, injuries and with matters such as young student family support.
More information about EDAS can be found on our website www.eudanceart.org and more information
about the individual workshops is featured on this website.
Sincerely,
Nili Glazer
General Director EDAS
