CNADM Workshops are intimate gatherings—you won’t see a thousand attendees because we limit the numbers. But you will see hundreds of teachers, dance students, parents, instructors, studio owners, and dance professionals who are serious about the business of dance! 


Annual Awards Banquet


Each summer, CNADM hosts our formal banquet, where attendees dress up and enjoy an evening of food, performances, and awards. Our Pre-Pro dancers kick things off with a performance of one of their original works from the week, and we spend the rest of the evening celebrating our members, teachers, students, and faculty.

CNADM recognizes membership and certification achievements, announces Pre-Pro and college scholarships, and ends the evening with the Artistic Achievement Award.





Gala Performance

To conclude the Summer Intensive Week, CNADM hosts a Gala Performance showcasing the original works set during the week. This is a free performance and live-streamed for audiences around the world.


Anyone attending events hosted by the Chicago National Association of Dance Masters (CNADM) grants the unrestricted right to use and publish photos or video footage taken during the event for the explicit use of advertising and promotion of CNADM. This includes, but is not limited to, print, website, social media, and press. Compensation will not be received for the use of said materials.
