The National Council of Dance is comprised with companies that have had long term experience in the industry and recognized as leaders in the industry. The focus is to work together to better present top quality camps, compeittions and special events by putting students first. It is our goal to insure each and every team that attends our events to have a quality experience presented by professional staff and backed up by an organized and attentive administrative staff.

The organization is comprised of the most prestigious companies within the dance/drill team industry that are privately owned and operated. These companies have a combined total of over 130 years of experience in the dance/drill team industry. 

They are all members of Dance/Drill Team Directors of America, Texas Dance Educators Association as well as many other state associations.

The company owners are renowned and respected leaders within the industry receiving honors such as Lifetime Achievement, Honorary Lifetime Members, Hall of Fame and other distinguished recognition within the industry. The companies are American Dance/Drill Team®, Just for Kix, Marching Auxiliaries/MA Dance, ShowMakers of America®, and ShowTime International.

The purpose of this organization is to better communicate the needs of the dance/drill team industry and to monitor the quality and standards that will lead the industry. The National Council of Dance helps to conform contest rules and regulations and entry divisions so that they will be the same from company to company. They hold conferences several times annually to discuss the needs of summer camp training, ethical codes of conduct at contests, benefit professional dance/drill team associations and to further the dance/drill team cause.

The National Council of Dance also officially supports En Croix, the fellowship for Christian dancers through promotional materials and scholarships.

To choose a company from the NCD would mean to choose a company that has vast experience in the industry as well as the integrity to stand behind their services. 

Each company has owners who have been dance/drill team directors and realize the needs of each director and team and has experience that can lend you support throughout the year. 

You will see the difference in camps, contests, one day dance workshops and special events with each of the member companies that will distinguish them from others in the industry with companies you can trust.
