The National Association of Dance and Affiliated Arts, Inc. is a non-profit organization, established in 1949, dedicated to serving the needs of today’s dance professionals and serious students of dance. We provide programs featuring the special talents of quality faculty offering the latest teaching tips and insights into what is new in the world of dance. These programs are geared for the progressive teacher and their students.
NADAA is made up of dedicated teachers who constantly strive to expand their knowledge of dance technique, teaching skills, and performance abilities. All sessions feature highly professional faculty presenting classes in Ballet, Tap, and Jazz techniques. Expanding the curriculum, classes may be offered in other disciplines – Modern, Lyrical, Contemporary, Hip Hop, Theater Dance and Character.
NADAA offers talent showcases at their one-day workshops (a great performing experience for the students), and competitions at the 2-3 day conventions. These competitions are critiqued by outstanding experts well qualified in their particular field of dance.
The NADAA youth programs offer many incentives for participating students. Session scholarships and National Merit Awards are presented to students selected by the faculty for their enthusiasm, motivation, and self-discipline evident in their performance of the presented material. Youth representatives are chosen from the local chapters to attend the National convention on tuition scholarships. A College scholarship is awarded to a graduating senior or current college student of a NADAA member who plans to major or minor in the arts.
