Membership Benefits

Like public radio, Boston Dance Alliance is member supported.

Your support makes BDA’s key initiatives including the BDA Open Call Audition, Dancer Health Day, Dancewear Distribution Program and Portable Dance Floor possible!

Your support also means BDA can provide these FREE valuable services:


In addition to these free services, we have four membership levels with exclusive and unique benefits for each member of our dance community. Some levels also include tiered pricing so you can select the annual membership fee that works best for you!

If you are enrolled as a BDA member through our previous system, you will be asked to register for one of our new and improved levels upon expiration of your membership. All previous membership benefits within our old system will remain until you renew under this new system! If you have any questions about this shift, please reach out to Miranda at mbrown@bostondancealliance.org

 

About New Tiered Membership Pricing:

BDA is committed to offering high-quality and accessible arts services for all. As such, some membership levels offer three tiers. Choose the tier that works best for you: this is an honor system and BDA does not require financial documentation. 

By paying what you are able, you help us better meet the needs of everyone in our dance community! There is no difference in membership benefits based on the tier you select.

 

Digital membership card:

Once you complete your membership registration, you will receive a digital membership card that includes your membership level, ID number, and membership expiration date. When in-person performances resume, you can show your digital BDA membership card on your mobile device for associated discounts! Presenting your own performances? Please consider offering a BDA discount to your audience!
