Membership Requirements

Dance Competitions and Conventions may join as Full Voting Members of the ADCC with voting rights. All members are at a single level, and each Member Competition/Convention receives one vote in elections. Annual membership runs January-December and provides benefits for that year.

ADCC Members must meet two key requirements. They must have been in business at least five (5) years and must have produced a minimum of eight (8) live events in three of the last five years. Membership Dues support The ADCC’s programs and services.
