The DDCA hosts a number of events each association year. Please use the links below to learn more about our upcoming events.
The DDCA Membership gathers three times per year at our Fall, Winter, and Spring Membership Meetings. The Board of Directors facilitates these meetings, where we discuss important events and issues pertinent to the time of year, review finances, and vote on any proposed changes. It is important that each school has at least one DDCA Member attend the membership meetings.
DDCA SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM
High school dance team seniors are invited to apply for the DDCA scholarships. These scholarships can be used for both dance and academic pursuits. The number and dollar amount of the scholarships are determined by the DDCA Board of Directors. Recipients will be announced at the OSAA State Championships. The scholarships will be paid directly to the institute after the student has been accepted and enrolled.
To be considered for a scholarship, dancers must submit applications to the DDCA based on the guidelines and criteria below. The DDCA Scholarship Committee receives numerous applications to review every year, so it is very important that dancers, coaches, and teachers carefully follow all of the directions on the application.
General DDCA Scholarship Eligibility Requirements
Candidates must have senior academic standing and be on track to graduate by June.
Candidates must be a member of an Oregon high school dance team at the time of the OSAA State Championships.
Team members may apply if all coaches affiliated with their team are members of the DDCA. That team must be an active member of the DDCA and participate in at least two sanctioned competitions during the year or compete at the OSAA State Championships.
