“The NDCA Conference was a fantastic celebration of the hard work, dedication and energy of some of the best dance professionals from across the country! I enjoyed getting to learn from the speakers as well as other attendees. I am looking forward to 2021!”
Tara Foglia
Head Dance Coach / Smithtown High School Varsity Whisperettes - Smithtown, NY
“I’m so glad I attended the NDCA conference this year. It was an amazing way to meet coaches and share experiences only coaches would understand. I was also able to gather new teaching techniques and motivational activities to bring home to my team. I can’t wait for next year!”
Teena Preuss
Owner & Director / Express All Stars - Grand Junction, CO
“I have been in this industry for over 35 years. The quality and knowledge of the presenters at this conference were second to none. I learned so much as a veteran director/coach. That in itself was so refreshing.”
Trish Ryan
Project Manager / TRIBE 99 Choreography - New York, NY
“The National Dance Team Coaches Conference was extremely organized, boasted incredible speakers, and connected me to so many others who are as dance team obsessed as I am. It is easy to feel alone in this passion, but this conference left me feeling invigorated for our profession and industry. You do not want to miss Nashville in 2021!”
Jan Phaigh-McCreary
Head Coach / Thurston Cabaret - Thurston, OR / DDCA Board of Directors
“The NDCA Conference was one of the best conferences I’ve ever been to! The classes and speakers were amazing. We learned the most up to date and innovative techniques that the dance world has to offer. NDCA is the organization of the future and is the place to find everything you need as well as the people to learn from. You definitely don’t want to miss it...see you there!”
Missy Hornberger
Head Coach / Eastlake High School - Bellevue, WA
“The 2018 NDCA conference was an incredible experience for me. As someone who is still fairly new to coaching, it was so nice to have the chance to be around some big names in the dance team community and other experts who had so much knowledge to share. Not only do you get to hear some of the things that others do to be successful, but you also learn that they have some of the same challenges. The NDCA conference allowed me the opportunity to not only meet with coaches from other states and levels, but also with coaches from my own state that I hadn’t had the chance to connect with before.”
Sarah Flisowski
Head Coach / Blinn College - Schulenburg, TX
“Conference was amazing! Seeing so many new faces from the year before shows that we are growing as an organization. The speakers were amazing and I felt they gave really good information to help with the upcoming year. I left feeling motivated with many new ideas”
Michelle Deets
Head Coach / Southern Illinois University Edwardsville - Edwardsville, IL
“I have attended several conferences in my role as a college coach, and this was by far the best conference I have ever attended! In addition to the valuable information I received from the presenters, I also was able to network with coaches from around the country. I would recommend this conference to all high school and college dance coaches”
Toya Ambrose
Former Coach & Current Owner / TRA Choreography
“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”
Steve Chapla
Head Coach / Xavier University - Cincinnati, OH
“The 2019 NDCA Conference was a great experience! The speakers and courses offered were very helpful and informative. This is exactly what the dance community needed! It was also a great networking opportunity and in a beautiful/fun location. Looking forward to the next one!”
