MEMBERSHIP

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

No initiation fees!  No referral needed! 

 

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 and blog, in our newsletter, and on social media. We invite you to join our community of dancers which includes over 500 members and multi-day events. Join now to start receiving the benefits of NFA membership, such as: 

  • 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 to medical and life insurance, event liability insurance, and officers & directors liability insurance.
