Individual Membership

NASD maintains an optional Individual Membership category that is open to dance professionals, educators, or other individuals who, through their teaching and professional activity or through their interest in accredited Membership for their institutions, may both derive benefit from the Association and contribute to its effective operation.


Individual Membership is designed especially for dance executives and faculty members of institutions preparing for NASD accredited institutional Membership. The dance executive is encouraged to become an individual Member during the application phase of the process.

Individual Membership is an avenue for establishing and maintaining contact with the Association and its activities, and includes:

  • Electronic and hard copy notifications from the Association (as applicable)
  • Inclusion of the individual’s name and contact information within the online list of Individual Members
  • Inclusion of the individual’s name and contact information in the mailing list database
  • Unrestricted access, by use of a login and password, to the advanced search tool for accredited institutional members of NASD

Individual Members are welcome to register and attend any Annual Meeting and/or Pre-Meeting Workshops. However, Individual Membership carries no voting rights or responsibilities.

Individual Membership does not connote accredited institutional membership.


Individual Membership dues are $75.00.

Individual Membership is valid for one year from the date of purchase. Dues are renewable each year.
