South Shore Dance Alliance is a not-for-profit entity dedicated to enhancing the educational and artistic experience of aspiring young dancers in the Northwest Indiana area. It was also founded on the premise that no aspiring dancer shall be denied access to training due to lack of financial resources.


We need your help to insure that the next generation of dedicated dancers can receive the quality training and performance opportunities they deserve.



SSDA is honored to be part of the 50th Anniversary of the Dunes National Lakeshore celebration on September 24-25, where we will premier a new work with original score by Kenneth Ware. Event details here.
