JOIN The NFA Dance Community

Membership
It’s easy to become a member of the National FastDance Association!

The NFA provides dancers with discounted music licensing and liability insurance. Our members receive substantial savings on music licensing fees for their dance activities and promotion of their clubs and events. We actively promote our members on our website, in our newsletter, and on social media. We invite you to join our community of dancers which includes over 500 affiliated members including social dance clubs, multi-day dance events, Deejays & Dance Instructors.

  • Music licensing that extends to parties held in locations not usually covered by such protection.

  • No waiting period, you become immediately affiliated with the NFA when your paperwork is received.

  • We process all reports and paperwork to ASCAP, BMI, and SESAC for our members.

  • Access officers & directors liability insurance.

Levels of Membership
We offer two levels of membership:

CLUB – social dance clubs

SUPPORTING – individuals (instructors/deejays/vendors),  event hosts/sponsors, other organizations

CLUB MEMBERSHIP

Annual Dues: 30 cents per member (Minimum Fee: $25, Maximum Fee: $100)

There is no requirement that your club has bylaws. Membership is available whether or not your club is incorporated/chartered or not and whether it is profit or non-profit. No referral needed. No annual meetings are required. Any other NFA member club that may be in your area cannot block your club affiliation.

Example: 

75 members x .30 = $22.50 and would round up to $25

400 members x .30 = $120 and would round down to $100
