Professional Membership Application

Professional Membership: Professional Dance Teachers are welcome to join the National Dance Teachers Association of America (NDTA) as Professional Members, by completing the Professional Membership Application and First Year Dues payment below, and meeting the requirements for Professional Membership.   Professional Membership is required to pursue Certification from NDTA.

If you are not a Professional Dance Teacher, or not interested in becoming a Professional Member, you are welcome to join as a Supporter Member. Everyone interested in supporting the art of dance or promoting excellence in dance is welcome to join as a Supporter Member, simply by completing the Supporter Membership Application and paying their first year’s Dues on the Supporter Membership page.

Annual Dues in either category are $40.00 for an individual member or $60.00 for a couple (meaning two dance partners, a married couple, or a couple in a committed long-term relationship). We appreciate and need the dues support of all of our Pro Members and loyal Supporters. For more information, see Who Can Join, Membership Benefits, and How to Join.
