How much is a Dance/USA membership?

As the dance ecosystem reimagines live, in-person performances, Dance/USA hopes to mirror that energy and continue reimagining our membership dues structure. In response to the pandemic, and to ensure all members were able to remain a part of the member community, Dance/USA created a sliding scale for member dues in 2021. 

We will continue to provide sliding scale options in 2022.If you are able to choose the higher price point, please know in doing so, it allows Dance/USA to support memberships of organizations and individuals who have financial obstacles that may prevent them from being a part of our member community.
