About the Event: The Maryland Dance Alliance (MDA) takes place annually and is sponsored by the Maryland Dance Education Association. 

Mission: MDA’s mission is to cultivate student leadership through the participation of schools with NHDSA chapters and make connections between high school age dance programs from across Maryland.




All high school age dance programs in MD (public/private/parochial/independent schools in MD with curricular dance programs, Rec and Parks, Community Dance Organizations, and private studios) are invited to participate in MDA. All high school age dance programs must also meet the eligibility requirements as outlined below.  

All groups participating in MDA must be NDEO/MDEA institutional members and have an active NHSDA chapter.  An institutional membership is needed to apply for an NHSDA chapter.
