Once your information has been received and payment has been confirmed, your EHDA membership number will be emailed to you.

Mobile Devices: you will need to scroll down for the AHDA fundraising fee; using your phone horizontally will make your selection easier.

Benefits of Membership:

No volunteer commitment.  We no longer require our members to volunteer at EHDA competitions.  We do request your assistance where you are able to help.  The competition committee still requires additional volunteers to help with admissions/numbers, line up, marking room, runner, announcer and set up/tear down.  Please fill in the volunteer area of the competition entry form when entering upcoming competitions.  Thank you.

Family admission.  EHDA will be charging a flat fee of $5.00 for a family admission and a program for all open events.  This fee will include admission for the dancer(s), his/her parents and siblings; a program will also be included.  There will be no charge for members for either admission or a program for the EHDA Closed November competition.
