Welcome to the Capital USA Dance December Update

Greetings, USA Dancers!

The holidays are here, by golly! Disapproval would be folly! Deck the halls with hunks of holly, and get ready for some jolly holiday dancing!

See you this Sunday...


New Year's Eve Dance

Time has run out on registrations for our spectacular New Year's Eve Celebration, but you still have one last chance! Due to a number of queries, as a special benefit to our members Capital USA Dance will re-open NYE registration for three hours at our December dance this Sunday. This is your absolute last chance to get in on the fun!

For details on the event, check out our website at Please note that online registration cannot be reopened, so you can only pay with cash or check during our last-chance registration period.

Questions should be directed to Karen Pelland at


Membership In USA Dance

Do you have your USA Dance membership card? In our update last month, we told you all about the benefits available to members who have their cards with them. We left out one very important perk, though!

On occasion, our membership lists get out of sync in our national organization's database. When this happens, you can find yourself at our registration table being told you're membership has expired, so we can't give you the membership discount! Having your card with you guarantees this discount, as it has all the details of your membership on it, and is always taken over the information we get emailed each month about member status.

To access your card, just visit the national website at Under the "Membership" menu, click "Join/Renew". If you need to create or renew an expired membership, or you are a current member who did not use the website to join in the first place, follow the "Join/Renew" link at the top of the page, and follow the instructions. If you are a current member who did sign up via the website, just click the "Edit" link. If you remember your membership number and password, just type them in. If not, you can follow the "Forgot Your Password" link to get an email.

Once you are logged in, click on "Membership Info", and you'll see a link at the left of the page, "View/Print My Membership Card". Go here to print your card!
