USA Dance Announcements
National Calendar for Upcoming Events
The National Organization is seeking to inspire America to get back to social dancing and part of this is to promote chapter based dance events throughout the country via our calendar so that when people begin traveling and want to social dance they have a single place to look OR to inspire other chapters to begin holding events as public health restrictions allow it. The calendar is available at https://usadance.org/events/event_list.asp. To ensure your event is listed you can either:
- Create the event within your chapter’s SocialLink group, complete this form, and then National Officers will be able to add it to the National calendar; OR
- Email the relevant info (date, time, chapter, theme or event name, contact info, flyer, etc.) to Chapterfirstname.lastname@example.org and the Marketing & Communications Committee will add it for you.
A number of members have expressed frustration at needing to remember to renew each year. Thus, we are excited to announce that auto-renewal is now available for all dancesport membership categories! If you would like to set up your membership for auto-renewal, please email email@example.com with your full name as it appears on your USA Dance card and your membership number. If you have any questions about this, please feel free to email our Membership Director, Margot Garnick at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Announcement of New Cooperation Agreement with Dance Vision
During the AGM, the Board of Directors announced a new agreement with Dance Vision to strategically align the two organizations. Dance Vision, also known as DVIDA, operates one of the largest ballroom dance teacher certification programs and provides instruction on syllabus dancers for competitive and social dancers via online and app formats. While more benefits will be included in the formal announcement later, one of the benefits of the new agreement includes a one-time 20% off coupon code for a new monthly or annual membership for USA Dance Social Dance members. To take advantage of this membership benefit, please email Margot Garnick at email@example.com. In order to maximize the benefit we strongly recommend the annual membership.
