In January 2012, Dance/USA launched the National Leadership Council for Dance (NLCD) as a way for individuals from across the country to help raise the visibility of the professional dance field. The NLCD offers dance patrons the opportunity to learn about the issues facing the field, share information, and support the advancement of dance nationally.
This September, NLCD members participated in an annual gathering in Washington, DC where they will met with key leaders in the arts and public policy. This gathering gave NLCD members the opportunity to advocate on Capitol Hill on behalf of dance and the performing arts.
Founding Members are individuals who pledge or make a contribution of $2,500. The NCLD is still seeking members. The goal is to have 20 members by the end of the year. Current NLDC members range from executive directors of renowned dance companies to dance enthusiasts who have a passion for furthering and strengthening professional dance.

NLCD members also have access to house tickets for purchase at partnering dance companies and presenting organizations. We are very grateful to all of the companies that agreed to participate in the House Seat program.
