Why are our dances fragrance-free events?

Many dancers are very sensitive to fragrances and body odor and that our dances are fragrance-free events. Dancers are strongly encouraged to shower before each dance event and to wear freshly laundered clothing washed in unscented laundry soap and unscented anti-static sheet in the dryer. Please refrain from using any scented products such as perfumes, colognes and scented after-shave liquids or lotions for reasons of both preference and health. Allergic reactions include headaches, sneezing, scratchy throats, watery eyes and a few other symptoms which can ruin the dance experience. Thanks for your consideration!
