Hear from some of our 2017 Congress attendees on why you should attend the 2018 Conference

TJ Maple
Coordinator of Spirit Programs, Stephen F. Austin State University / Nacogdoches, TX

I’m glad to be a charter member

Being a member of the NDCA, and attending the 2017 Congress has already proven to be useful in my career. The knowledge shared through membership is priceless, and I have already connected with many other dance coaches from across the nation. Having an organization created by coaches for coaches has been needed for quite some time, and I’m glad to be a charter member.

Head Coach, Tumwater High School Dance Team, 20+ years / Tumwater, WA

Exceeded all my expectations

The NDCA Congress exceeded all my expectations. The networking among coaches and the professional connections facilitated by the conference have made a significant impact on the coaches of Washington State. Can't wait for the 2018 Conference!

Heather Wong
Co-Executive Director, Washington State Dance/Drill Coaches Association

Fantastic organization

The NDCA is a fantastic organization to network with coaches from across the nation. It's exciting to talk with coaches who I would otherwise not get the chance to meet. I attended the 2017 Congress and was able to bring back wonderful ideas to our state coaches' association and share tips and tricks to help other programs succeed.

Lana Carey
Head Coach, Foothill High School Dance Team, 13 years / Henderson, NV

Incredible experience

I attended the first NDCA Congress last May, and it was an incredible experience! The energy and passion were so inspiring. There were people from all areas of dance collaborating together to help support the vision of a unified dance coaches' association. I was involved in the planning stages for the first NDCA Conference, and I cannot wait - it is going to be amazing! Thank you NDCA!

Toya Ambrose
Owner, TRA Choreography / Former Coach


The NDCA is exactly what our industry needs. I’ve been a part of the dance team industry on all levels (first a dancer, then a coach, now a choreographer). I love that the NDCA has the ability to unite us all, despite various levels of experience - it will give us a powerful voice. I’m looking forward to the NDCA Conference and being able to develop a fellowship with others who share my passion for all things dance team. If you’re thinking about joining- stop thinking and DO IT!
