Note about 2021 AIFD Membership
The AIFD board has extended the term for current members to the end of 2021 due to the extraordinary conditions of the coronavirus pandemic. (Membership is January to December.) We look forward to dancing with everyone when this is over and want to make it easy and welcoming when we go back to dancing live. This means current members will not need to pay a fee for 2021 AIFD membership.

However, if you do want to pay for 2021 as we are a non-profit organization, you can email Marcia at
