After seeing too many students come to EDN! rehearsals with McDonalds, Monster energy drinks, and huge bags of hot Cheeto’s to dance class, Everybody Dance Now! leaders felt inspired to incorporate more nutrtition education into our programs, beginning in 2010. Every quarter at each site, a certified nutritionist will teach a lesson to EDN! students about proper nutrition and how it relates to dance. We feel that we EDN! is in in a unique position to inspire and educate our students to eat more healthily, since they trust and respect their EDN! teachers, and can experience how nutrition directly transfers into their energy levels through dancing.
