DAC Conference

DAC members gather annually to network, share ideas and continue to develop their ability to serve Canada’s dance community.

“…The manufacturers really outdid themselves with excellent trade show specials and incentives. This combined with new products, networking, and the regular meeting of new friends, made the whole trip a huge success!”
