JUL 19100th Anniversary Celebration
100th Anniversary Celebration
The Chicago National Association of Dance Masters was formed on August 15, 1912, making 2012 our 100th anniversary year! The founding mission was “to perfect and build an organization of Dancing Teachers in the city of Chicago.” From those humble beginnings has grown a national-recognized organization with members throughout North America.
There were ten members present at the first CNADM meeting held at Frank L. Oleson’s Dancing Academy. Today, the organization serves over 350 members and hosts over 700 attendees at the annual summer workshops.

Mark your calendars now to attend the 100th Anniversary Banquet Celebration on Thursday evening, July 19, 2012 at the Drury Lane Theatre in Oak Brook, IL. This special evening will include the unveiling of our Chicago Dance video, historical reminiscences, entertainment by members of the Giordano Jazz Dance Chicago Company (who will be celebrating their 50th Anniversary with us) and other surprises.
Throughout the summer workshops we’ll feature:
