The National Dance Coaches Association Hall of Fame
One of the purposes of the NDCA is to recognize, honor, and award people in our profession, both past and present, who have been a driving force in the dance team community.
Nominees/recipients of the Hall of Fame award may be coaches, retirees, or dance team associates such as judges, consultants, or choreographers. The person should have served at least ten years in the profession and have developed a successful dance team program at his/her level (high school, college, all star) and in his/her area (coaching, judging, choreography, etc.) The work of the nominee/recipient should also extend into the wider dance team community through activities such as teaching, mentoring, participating in coaches’ associations, consulting, and/or speaking.
To nominate a person for the NDCA’s Hall of Fame, please complete the online nomination form which includes a written statement of no more than 500 words explaining why this person should be considered.
