Scope and Contents

The World Dance Alliance Americas is an organization focused on the conservation of the world’s dance heritage and the encouragement of the art of dance. Founded in 1990 during an international dance conference in Hong Kong, the WDA serves as a principal spokesperson for the study and appreciation of dance. The primary goals include: opening its membership to all dance organizations of any discipline; establishing a base for dance organizations to exchange information, expertise and resources through the publication of directories and newsletters; increasing awareness of dance as art by identifying and promoting international dance traditions; preserving identified dance traditions in notation and media; coordinating global assemblies and meetings to discuss relevant topics in contemporary dance as well as enjoy performances from various disciplines or traditions; facilitating communication between dancers of any discipline or tradition to revitalize education in dance communities; and building a balanced, positive environment in which dance affects the globe socio-culturally.

The collection is comprised of organizational records – board meetings, minutes, membership records, and correspondence; subject files; publications – organizational newsletters and publications collected during board meetings and global assemblies; as well as photographs and media.
