NATIONAL FASTDANCE ASSOCIATIONsm

Did you know that social dance clubs, organizations, and even dance instructors are required by U.S. Copyright Law to pay licensing fees for music played at classes, parties, and events?  Yes, that is the law. The National FastDance Association (NFA) exists to help dancers save money on these licensing fees.  We do this by bringing our members under the national licensing umbrella that we have with the three Performing Rights Organizations (ASCAP, BMI, and SESAC).  The fees collected are paid to publishers and songwriters as royalties from the public performance of their music. We believe in supporting these artists.  Beyond offering reduced rates to our members, we also offer promotion of their clubs and events and access to liability insurance. 

WE ARE EXPANDING! 

From the start, our focus has been licensing and promoting swing dance, but  now we are open to license any style of dance, from acro to zouk!

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

National Boppers Hall of Fame

The National Boppers HOF is dedicated to honoring those individuals within the national "fastdance" community who have unselfishly contributed their time, talents and efforts to preserve, promote and pass on to future generations all of our various dance styles and music. 

MULTI-DAY EVENTS AND CONVENTIONS

Through the NFA licenses can be secured for multi-day dance events and conventions with the three PRO’s for about the cost of one or two event passes. It's a great deal and an inexpensive way to avoid unnecessary risks.

We promote multi-day events on our event directory and in our  newsletter  and on our social media pages to get the word out to as many dancers as possible. It is an important element in the services we provide.
