About the American College Dance Association
The American College Dance Association (ACDA) was founded in 1973 to acknowledge and foster the role that colleges had been playing in the development of dance since the 1960’s. Originally formed by thirteen charter member colleges and universities as the American College Dance Festival Association, the ACDA now consists of over 300 member institutions. The ACDA sponsors eleven regional conferences where colleges and university submit pieces to be adjudicated by nationally recognized dance professionals. The association also sponsors the National Dance Festival, which showcases works selected from all the regional conferences.
