  • Are membership categories and dues changing for DHC members?

  • What if I am already a Dance/USA member?

You do not need to purchase an additional DHC membership. Please contact Tevin Giddens at tgiddens@danceusa.org to be added to the Dance Heritage Affiliate Affinity Group.

  • What if I purchased a two-year membership to DHC?

Your membership is still valid though the period for which you paid. You will receive a promo code that allows you to join through Dance/USA at no cost for the remainder of your DHC membership. Please contact Tevin Giddens at tgiddens@danceusa.org to receive your special promo code.

  • What will happen at the end of the transitional membership period in June 2018?

Members will have the option to renew using the Dance/USA categories and dues that are current for the 2018-2019 membership year.

  • What will happen to DHC’s website and online resources?

DHC’s website and online resources will remain available. Eventually these resources will be migrated to Dance/USA’s website; announcements will be made when any URL’s change. The secure media network at archive.danceheritage.org will be transferred to new ownership (a nationally recognized organization) to ensure long-term preservation and accessibility of these assets.

  • How can DHC members stay involved?

DHC institutional and organizational members will have the opportunity to join the Dance Archives Affinity Group, which will meet through quarterly conference calls and at Dance/USA’s Annual Conference. Members will receive newsletters and announcements from both Dance/USA and DHC.

With institutional or organizational membership, up to five staff members may take advantage of member benefits. 

  • Which DHC programs will continue?

DHC and Dance/USA will be working together during the pilot period to develop and implement projects and set priorities for the future. DHC under Dance/USA remains committed to core mission objectives: provide services and resources to help artists document, save, and share their work; expand access to dance research materials for students, faculty, scholars, and the general public; develop education, training, and engagement programs within and beyond the dance field.
