Dear Association Director,


Welcome! I hope you are excited to learn more about the NDCA. The National Dance Coaches Association has formed partnerships with multiple state and national dance coaches groups and we would love to have your association collaborate with us. 

Do you want to improve the dance team experience for coaches and student athletes in your state? A state coaches association can benefit both coaches and dancers in many ways. I have been involved in the coaches association in my state for over 25 years, and I have seen the power of bringing coaches together to work toward common goals that benefit students. First and foremost, because our state association represents almost all teams in the state, we have a strong voice and excellent working relationship with the state athletics and activities association. We have worked consistently to educate and advocate for coaches. We have also brought stability by outlining clear rules and policies that govern dance, including judging. If you believe that your state could benefit from forming a state association, I would be happy to help you with that process! 

The NDCA has so much to offer your organization and we have many other association leaders ready to connect with you. Our goal is to elevate every dance coaches association across the country through sharing resources and national networking. 

We can't wait for the opportunity to work with you.
