*Videos posted on CDA Social Media are not a CDA requirement to use and are provided as an optional way of staying engaged with dance while the studio is closed due to COVID-19 .
CDA is not liable for at-home dance related injuries. If using dance videos, the individual must adjust movement to their individual level and space on their own.
To adjust the level of choreography to make it more doable :
-Dancers can move smaller,
-Do a only a short part of the combination,
-Learn an 8 count and do it slower to other music.*
