As President of the National hand Dance Association (NHDA), I would like to thank you for visiting our newly redesigned web site. We hope that you will find it easy to navigate as you research the organization and the social and cultural art form of Hand Dance.
Hand Dance is the “Official Dance of the District of Columbia” (by Resolution of the DC Council). Hand Dance is also gaining ground as a major component in American and African American vernacular dance.
NHDA is a clearinghouse for information and resources associated with Hand Dance. Click onto the various links and you will find information on the organization including membership into NHDA, names and locations of area-wide Hand Dance classes, listings various social events, when and where the latest NHDA Hand Dance presentations, demonstrations, and public outreach programs will take place, the best in dance competitions, the new youth movement in Hand Dance including youth hand dance classes and where the youth are social dancing, providing recreation and physical movement through senior Hand Dance workshops, and much more.
Thanks to the NHDA web designer, Charlese Mayo.
We look forward to see you on the dance floor!
